Redskins' Meriweather hits back at Bears' Marshall

Share This Story



Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather says that ''people who beat their girlfriends should be kicked out of the league'' - a direct swipe at Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall.

Meriweather made the comment Monday after he returned from a one-game suspension for helmet-first hits.

One of the hits was made against Marshall in the Redskins' win over the Bears last week. After the game, Marshall says players such as Meriweather perhaps need to be ''taken out of the game completely.''

Says Meriweather: ''You tell me who you'd rather have - somebody who plays aggressive on the field, or somebody who beat up their girlfriend?''

Marshall's checkered legal history included multiple arrests following confrontations with a girlfriend when he was playing for the Denver Broncos.
