This type of block never used to be deemed illegal. This isn’t rare. But in this new age of player safety, Seattle’s Golden Tate will likely be fined for the hit he put on Dallas’ Sean Lee.
This play happened in the 3rd quarter of yesterday’s 27-7 Seahawks win when Seattle QB, Russell Wilson was scrambling.
Expect a fine in the coming days because Lee was “defenseless” and Tate launched himself. In case you were wondering, a flag was not thrown on the play.
