Willie Young feels the need to taunt Tom Brady after incomplete pass, gets penalized

I’m all about being a fierce competitor, but maybe someone should tell Lions defensive lineman Willie Young to tone it down a little. Grabbing a Hall of Fame quarterback by his jersey and pointing him in the face after a meaningless incomplete pass in a meaningless preseason game isn’t exactly a great look.

That’s exactly what Young did towards the end of the second quarter during the Lions-Patriots exhibition on Thursday after his pass rush forced Tom Brady to get rid of the ball. The unnecessary and excessive extracurriculars earned Young a taunting flag and the (unofficial) label of “jackass of the night.”
