Donte Whitner: "I'm going to continue to play physical"

San Francisco 49ers defensive back Donte Whitner reveals that he is frustrated by the NFL's strict rules on hitting defenceless receivers.

San Francisco 49ers safety Donte Whitner has hit out at the NFL for their strict rules regarding hits on offensive players.

The 28-year-old was penalised during his side's 35-11 win over the St Louis Rams on an unnecessary roughness call for hitting defenceless receiver Chris Givens as he attempted to catch a pass from Sam Bradford in the endzone.

"I think I'm just supposed to let them catch a touchdown now," Whitner said on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

"I think that's what the National Football League wants, but I'm not going to give them that.

"I'm going to continue to play physical, continue to hit the right way, lead with my shoulder, and I'm not targeting anybody's head."

The 49ers are 2-2 after week four of their season.
