“When you look at past issues, like targeting the helmet, concussions, whatever it may be, whenever something has been brought to the forefront like this, history would show that the league takes a look at it, sees what it can do better, raises awareness for the issue, communicates about the issue,” Washington backup quarterback Kirk Cousins said.

“I fully expect … the (players’ union), the league, to start to bring it up as an issue that previously we wouldn’t even be talking about,” Cousins said. “Most rookies are going to face (hazing), and it would be something that would be smart to know how to handle and how to win the respect of your teammates without going too far. That’s something I’m sure they’ll address now, going forward.”

Only one of several serious matters the NFL needs to address.
