NFL warns teams against staff-involved confrontations after ‘Big Dom’-Dre Greenlaw flap in 49ers-Eagles game.

The NFL sent a memo Wednesday warning teams against staff interactions with opposing players in the aftermath of Sunday’s confrontation between San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw and Philadelphia Eagles security staffer “Big Dom” DiSandro.

The memo goes on to state that “this has been made clear on numerous occasions” alongside a vow that the league will “diligently enforce these rules and assess accountability measures on both individuals and clubs as appropriate.”

The NFL reportedly launched an investigation into the incident, which could result in disciplinary measures for DiSandro and the Eagles.

Wednesday’s memo did not address DiSandro, Greenlaw, the Eagles or the 49ers directly.

Things got heated between Greenlaw and DiSandro during Sunday’s 49ers win after Greenlaw’s hard tackle of Eagles receiver DeVonta Smith along the Eagles sideline. The shot after the whistle caught Greenlaw’s attention.

DiSandro, the Eagles’ safety, stood nearby after the tackle and stepped between Greenlaw and Smith.

He then pushed Greenlaw, causing Greenlaw to punch him in the face. Greenlaw grazed DiSandro’s face and the exchange of messages resulted in both being ejected from the game.

The incident sparked debate over whether Greenlaw should have been ejected for a relatively minor physical altercation caused by an Eagles employee.

The ejection was a positive for the Eagles, who saw a key 49ers defensive end eliminated without losing anyone from the team who would have had a real impact on the game.
