Vernon Davis wants NFL to implement new ‘penis tackle’ rule


San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is spearheading a one-man crusade against what he calls the penis tackle, after you guessed it, he was an unfortunate victim of one against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday…

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

“I’m still thinking about it. I can feel it,” Davis said, via the team’s website. “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.”
