This entry has nothing to do with Matthews’ current level of ability, as the Packers sack artist is still one of the league’s best at his craft. However, Matthews can’t seem to avoid falling foul of the new rule making it illegal to land with your body weight on the quarterback.

Between 2009 and 2017 Matthews was called for four roughing the passer penalties. With these new rules in place, It will be a miracle if he doesn’t double that total in 2018. It’s unfortunate but Matthews is one of the NFL stars who need to call it quits now.
