On Monday, Cleveland Browns linebacker Mack Wilson responded to the mother of Patrick Mahomes on Twitter who insinuated he was evil for his tackle on her son.
No disrespect mom I’m just playing hard. This is a dangerous game we play and we take a risk every time we step foot on the field. I’m happy that Pat is okay but mind you.. I’ve never been a dirty player. I just want to win and be great like your son. 🙏🏾❤️

Wilson made a tackle on Mahomes on Sunday during the AFC Divisional Round of the playoffs. There was no penalty issued on the play for targeting as it was a legal tackle.
Despite losing Mahomes for the rest of the game, his backup Chad Henne was able to pull out the 22-17 win.
Mahomes himself even responded to one of Wilson’s tweets who even said there was no issue between the two and that everything is all good between them.
All good brother! 💪🏽 https://t.co/ORwLG6eFTV
