Donte Whitner once wanted to legally changed his name to Hitner to suit the bone-crushing hits he delivers.

Changing his name to anything else might be his only option now if he wants to skirt a week of ridicule. The Browns safety was absolutely blown up on a play during Cleveland’s Sunday loss to Denver — by Peyton Manning.

Say what you want about Manning’s declining passing skills. His block almost sprung running back Ronnie Hillman.

As for Whitner — he’s a a 10-year veteran. He should know to keep his head on a swivel for 39-year-old quarterbacks.
