While many were quick to point out the NFL's disparity in not suspending players for similar actions, including NYG's Kadarius Toney throwing this punch in a game at the Cowboys, there's no defending the position Hill leaves Dallas' in for Thursday against the Saints.

Hill and Gallimore competed for snaps at the 3T position last season when Hill was available.
