Pittsburgh Steelers player rants about NFL rules


PITTSBURGH (WPXI) — The penalties and suspensions stemming from Monday night's physical, and what some would call violent, Steelers vs. Bengals game have drawn criticism from players, fans and media.

The one-game suspension handed out to the Patriots' Rob Gronkowski did likewise.

Steelers safety Mike Mitchell is no stranger to penalties and fines.

On Wednesday, Mitchell went on a long rant on the NFL's policy on hitting after being asked about options on players being physical, but within the league's current rules.
