Kareem Jackson is being attacked on social media for his unnecessary roughness despite promising to change his playing style.
Kareem Jackson’s Return
Denver Broncos safety Kareem Jackson returned from a two-game suspension and promised to change the way he plays. However, Kareem Jackson delivered a dirty hit on Minnesota Vikings quarterback Josh Dobbs during Sunday Night Football, making clear helmet-to-helmet contact.
Despite the blatant hit, Kareem Jackson was not penalized, which drew criticism from NBC rules analyst Terry McAulay. The Kareem Jackson’s hit resulted in a fumble that the Broncos recovered, and Dobbs was cleared to play after being checked in the medical tent.
According to a published article by Heavy.com, Kareem Jackson has been fined four times this season for unnecessary roughness, amounting to $90,000, and is likely to receive another fine due to this incident. Many NFL fans have taken to social media to express their dissatisfaction and have called for Kareem Jackson’s suspension.
In a published article by Broncos Wire, Kareem Jackson has faced four fines for unnecessary roughness this season and recently served a two-game suspension as a repeated offender.
Despite promising to change his playing style to avoid further penalties, Jackson, in his first game after the suspension, forcefully collided with Minnesota Vikings quarterback Josh Dobbs without penalty. It is likely that Kareem Jackson may face additional fines or another suspension as a result.
