Buffalo Bills safety Micah Hyde posited a novel idea to try to cut down on the number of helmet-to-helmet hits pass-catchers withstand over the course of a game.

Hyde proposed a fine for quarterbacks when they leave their receivers susceptible on high throws.

“Those bang-bang plays, it’s tough,” Hyde said, per ESPN.com’s Mike Rodak. “Start fining the quarterbacks. They’re the ones who are throwing the ball right there. It’s tough for us [defensive players] to be able to adjust last second to get our head to one side, the other side—up, down. We’re trying to make a play like the receiver is. It’s the sport of football.”
