Miami Dolphins wide receiver Danny Amendola has been tackled a lot in his career. In Week 6, Chicago Bears linebacker Leonard Floyd took tackling to another level with a flip tackle on the veteran receiver.

In the first quarter, as Miami was trying to move down the field, Amendola caught a pass then tried to get under Floyd to fight for extra yards. Floyd wasn’t having any of it as he picked up Amendola and flipped him onto the ground.

Big hits are one thing in the NFL, but you don’t often see a player get lifted off the ground then flipped and thrown to the turf. Rookie linebacker Roquan Smith even came in on this one to help Floyd execute the finishing move.
