St. Louis Rams punter Johnny Hekker tried to get in on the contact part of football, but it wasn’t long before he changed his mind about being more involved.
After a punt in the first quarter of Sunday’s game in Seattle, Hekker shoved Seahawks linebacker Cliff Avril to the ground while he was on his way back to the sideline. Hekker was flagged for the cheap shot, but on his next punt, Avril and Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett wanted to make sure he never tried that again.
And Hekker willingly obliged.
That’s pretty much the reaction anyone would have after being charged by 260 and 274 pounds of Seahawk. However, Bennett apparently still was upset about it after the Seahawks’ 23-17 loss, and he proceeded to bash Hekker in a locker-room interview.
Sounds like he got his point across.
