Derek Carr wishes Dolphins lineman had landed on him to avoid injury

Derek Carr

Miami Dolphins defensive end William Hayes tore his ACL while trying to avoid putting his weight on Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr during Sunday’s game to avoid a roughing the passer call under the league’s new rules. That has prompted an avalanche of criticism of the rule, arguing that it’s making other players less safe at the expense of quarterback safety.

Carr, the quarterback involved, thought Hayes should have landed on him, and not because he wanted the penalty yardage.

Even opponents who benefit have been critical of the rule. While Carr isn’t directly criticizing it, it’s pretty clear he thinks there should be some common-sense limits to what is illegal under the interpretation of the rule.
