San Francisco 49ers Tight End Vernon Davis is strongly against the idea of NFL players tackling opposing players by the penis. Vernon Davis took to Twitter a couple hours ago to express his strong stance on this pressing issue. He believes there should be a league rule against this:

St. Louis Rams safety T.J. McDonald appeared to grab the groin of Vernon Davis on one of his tackles. Vernon Davis said after the game that he was grabbed by the genitals, that he yelled for McDonald to let go, and that McDonald held on anyway.
“I’m still thinking about it. I can feel it,” Vernon Davis said. “It was a crossing route, I made the play and as soon as I got my hands on the ball, [McDonald] was grabbing me right there in that space, that area, and I kept telling him, ‘Let go, get off me, get off me,’ and he wouldn’t let me go.”
The video of the play verifies what Vernon Davis said: McDonald grabbed his junk and didn’t let go.
