Raiders linebacker Arden Key hugged Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, apparently too hard, because he was flagged for roughing the passer.
No I’m not kidding. I really wish I was. This is not what we want to happen to the NFL.
Key grabbed Mayfield and squeezed him before releasing him and putting his hands in the air. That is roughing the passer in 2018.

Here it is folks. Football as we know it is dead. There will be a red jersey and flags hanging from the quarterback’s waist in a matter of months.
