If Zac Stacy were still in the NFL, he wouldn’t be.

A horrifying video has emerged of Stacy attacking his ex-girlfriend, punching her before throwing her into a TV.

TMZ.com reports that the incident happened in the victim’s home on Saturday.

Folks around the NFL are noticing the video, and reacting to it.

“For the record,” Ravens defensive lineman Calais Campbell said on Twitter, “any man that puts his hands on a woman is a coward! Short of defending yourself in a life or death situation, there is no excuse!”

Packers receiver Davante Adams was more blunt.

“I’m not retweeting the video but ZAC STACY NEEDS TO BE THROWN UNDER THE JAIL,” Adams said. “Any man that puts his hands on a woman is a coward. Can’t believe what I just saw.”

Chris Long, who played with Stacy in St. Louis, added this: “Woke up to the Zac Stacy video. Made my stomach turn. Not retweeting. Crazy to play [with] someone for a couple years & you have no idea what kind of bullshit they do at home.”

Stacy spent two years with the Rams and one with the Jets. He rushed for 973 yards as a rookie.

  1. All in front of a child. Sadly people think it’s an acceptable way to treat others. We’re all in this thing called life together. Do something to make someone smile everyday and may peace be the journey.

  2. That’s horrific. Did he know there were cameras in the house, or did she install them because of what kind of guy he is?

  3. Any man that puts their hands on a woman is a complete coward. Doing so in front of your infant child is the most disgusting thing ever…wtf

  4. I don’t care what happened to trigger him, he’s a monster with serious anger issues who should be locked up for menacing and assaulting her.

  5. It’s fortunate that this assault was captured on video. How many times have we read about this same thing happening but without seeing it these cases seem to go away with either the victim downplaying the incident or some type of settlement? And then a player is back on the field playing. Someone was actually stupid enough to post a question to this on whether the victim cheated on Stacy, like that would make a difference? Really?

    These assaults that happen to these women, and sometimes kids, by these football players are no less violent because they’re not on tape. No suspension is long enough and I hope this guy gets what he really deserves and the tape will be in the hands of those that can bring that about. The whole thing is just disgusting.

  6. This is exactly the type of person that prisons are built for. He needs a looooonnnngg adult time out. And good on her if she did install them to catch this.

  7. I would absolutely throw the book at him. A nice long stretch with the big boys should soften his cough. And there’s no way I would let him anywhere near that baby. Supervised visits only. If at all.

  8. What happened to that young woman is horrifying and I sincerely hope she has the support system around her to make it through this.

    And I’m so happy that NFL players are standing up for this young woman and denouncing Stacy’s actions.
    Elsewhere, Dalvin Cook was quoted as saying, “Hey, there’s two sides to every story.”

  9. Even in a horrific situation like this, some cheesers can’t get the Viking off out of their head. One is completely pathetic, the other just sad.

  10. After seeing this video, you just have to hope that he gets locked up for a very long time. That was brutal and sickening, particularly with his little son right there watching.

  11. Tough for abused women to completely walk away from these relationships, especially with children involved. I hope she knows to never be alone with her again and if he ever gets visitation it better be supervised.
