Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather wants Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall kicked out of the NFL over allegations of domestic abuse.

Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather has called for Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall to be kicked out of the NFL over allegations of domestic abuse.

Meriweather has courted controversy so far this season having received a fine for an illegal hit in week two against the Green Bay Packers as well as two-game suspension that was eventually reduced to one for a pair of hits against the Bears on October 20.

Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett said after the game that he would like to punch Meriweather in the face, but the Redskins safety was more concerned with Marshall, who has been arrested multiple times on alleged charges of domestic abuse without ever being convicted.

"He feels like I need to be kicked out of the league, I feel like people who beat their girlfriends should be kicked out of the league too," Meriweather told reporters.

"You tell me who you'd rather have, someone who plays aggressive on the field or someone who beat up their girlfriend?"

Meriweather's suspension ruled him out of Sunday's 45-21 defeat to the Denver Broncos, but he will be available to face the San Diego Chargers this weekend.
