There are sucker punches, then there’s what Javon Wims did to a Saints defender on the field Sunday.
At the end of a play during the third quarter of a game his team was losing and trying desperately to win, Javon Wims ran up behind Saints defender Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, tapped him on the chest, and then punched him, twice.

Gardner-Johnson appeared genuinely shocked by Wims’ attack, and why not? After all, how many people normally run up to someone unprovoked and punch them while they’re wearing a helmet?
Not many, and there’s good reason for that.
Wims was ejected from the game and could miss additional games via suspension. At the very least, he will find himself a little lighter in the wallet once the league evaluates his actions.
