Tennessee Titans wide receiver Nate Washington took issue with New Orleans safety Roman Harper after the latter saved a touchdown by using the facemask to tackle Damian Williams on Sunday.
Williams reeled in a 54-yard reception from rookie Jake Locker before Harper dragged him down by the facemask. Washington claimed that Harper added a strike with his knee after the tackle.
"Honestly, he's a dirty player. I've been watching him. We watched film on him. He's dirty, and I don't appreciate it,” Washington told the team's website.
"I'm going to step out in public and say it – he's dirty. That was dirty, what he did. It was unfortunate that he grabbed the facemask. And at the same time, you don't walk over a guy and nudge him with your knee. You don't do that. That's dirty. Honestly, that's a dirty player. This is not just one game. He's been doing it all season. I'm tired of it. I hope the league does something about it."
