Vernon Davis wants to outlaw the penis tackle


San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis wants the NFL to outlaw what can only be described as the penis tackle.

In Sunday’s win against the St. Louis Rams, Davis was dragged down by his man parts by safety T.J. McDonald.


In a since deleted tweet, Davis wrote the following on Monday:

It should be a league rule saying that a defender can not tackle a player by his penis. #NFL the most painful thing ever! #NFL

After the game Davis told reporters that “I’m still thinking about it. I can feel it,” Davis said. “It was a crossing route, I made the play and as soon as I got my hands on the ball, [McDonald] was grabbing me right there in that space, that area, and I kept telling him, ‘Let go, get off me, get off me,’ and he wouldn’t let me go.”

In fairness to McDonald, I doubt the Rams defender sought out to bring Davis or anyone down by their penis, junk or whatever.
