Veteran Carolina Panthers linebacker and NFL Man of the Year Thomas Davis sounded off on former New England safety and current analyst Rodney Harrison on Friday.
Davis caught wind of Harrison’s inflammatory comments about injuring Cam Newton and took to Twitter Friday morning to let the NBC analyst know what he thinks.
“How can you sit there and say you would intentionally try to hurt another player?” Davis tweeted. “#NoRespectForTheGame get this clown off the air!!”
Davis then referenced Harrison’s 2007 suspension for four games for using human growth hormone.

“It’s crazy to think that I actually (used) to look up to a guy like @rodney_harrison even after he got caught cheating!” Davis tweeted.
Davis comments come two days after Harrison told Dan Patrick that, if he were playing in Super Bowl 50, he would try to injure him in a way that would take him out of the game.
“If I was playing against Cam Newton, I would try to take him out,” Harrison said. “I would try to take him out.
“I would try to hurt him. I would go right at his knees. That’s the goal. That’s the goal: you want to knock him out. That might be the difference between winning and losing the Super Bowl.”
Players won’t be available to the media until after the Super Bowl, so this may be all we hear about it.
