Bobby Wagner doesn't want college-style targeting rule in the NFL

George Iloka's agent blames hit on Antonio Brown for lowering his head

The current rule used by the NCAA requires ejections, subject to replay review, for targeting a defenseless opponent above the shoulder and forbids players to use the crown of their helmets to tackle an opponent.

As the NFL continues to search for ways to eliminate unsafe hits, one idea being discussed is adding a targeting rule that would mirror the one already used in college football.

There have been many proponents of the potential rule change, but Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner isn't one.

"It's awful", the Seahawks defender said of the league potentially adopting targeting rules, per Curtis Crabtree of NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk. "You can just see it now. I would rather that rule stay in the colleges then come up here and start messing up our game".

Intuit (NASDAQ:INTU) Given New $158.00 Price Target at UBS
Following the transaction, the executive vice president now directly owns 2,675 shares of the company's stock, valued at $385,735. Saturna Capital Corp decreased its stake in Intuit (INTU) by 9.72% based on its latest 2017Q2 regulatory filing with the SEC.

After a Bengals vs. Steelers game on Monday night that was brutally physical, to say the least, suspensions have been assessed, but a stricter policy on illegal hits may be imminent.

It's not yet known whether the National Football League would duplicate this rule in its current form. Following this weekend's incident where Rob Gronkowski dropped a shoulder on a face-down Tre'Davious White, there was outrage over the failure to immediately eject Gronk, as well as his decision to appeal his suspension. "You can (be) conscious of it but I don't think it's all on the defense even though I feel like we are trying to do a better job of making sure we're not using our head". "What's a hit that's worthy of ejection?"

In the wake of a week of play marred by several unsafe head-to-head hits, NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent announced on Wednesday that the league is considering taking further action to protect its players.
