Danny Trevathan says he has smoothed things over with Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams.
The former Kentucky LB and current Chicago Bear was suspended by the NFL for his vicious hit against Adams. The hit certainly looked dirty and unnecessary, but Trevathan continues to claim the helmet-to-helmet hit was unintentional.
Regardless of intentions, the hit was an especially brutal one. Adams had to be carted off the field and was taken to the hospital. He was diagnosed with a concussion, but he was able to play against Dallas this past Sunday.
Patrick Finley with The Chicago Sun-Times says Trevathan reached out to Adams after the hit to wish him well:
‘‘I told him I hope he’s good,’’ Trevathan, who returned from his one-game suspension for the hit, said Wednesday. ‘‘Hope you know I wasn’t trying to harm him. I was just trying to make a play.’’
Trevathan also said Adams was cool with his call:
‘‘He was real cool,’’ Trevathan said. ‘‘He plays football. He plays it hard, and he plays it good. Obviously, he played last week. He did good. He handled it well. We were good.’’
It certainly was a tough hit, but it is good to see that Adams is okay and that Trevathan has tried to make things right.
