Fans were particularly upset with Witten’s strong condemnation of Redskins linebacker Reuben Foster.
When Witten was asked if Washington should’ve taken a chance on Foster, a player involved in multiuple domestic violence incidents, here’s how he responded.
“100% no. I think the Washington Redskins used horrendous judgment in claiming this guy. And I understand that it’s an ongoing investigation. But, my family’s been affected by domestic violence. I understand the anguish that it causes. Young players just have to understand there is no tolerance for putting your hands on a woman.”
