Patriots Safety Bret Lockett Says NFL Are ‘Risking Player Safety’ With Replacement Refs

By Amber GoodhandRadar News Editor

The Green Bay Packers/Seattle Seahawks game on Monday night cemented the need to get the regular NFL officials back on the field, but besides bad calls, New England Patriots safety Bret Lockett exclusively tells that the replacement refs are putting the players’ safety at risk!

“These replacement refs need to go now!” Bret told “They are risking player safety and the integrity of the game we all love.”

The league’s standoff with the referees has players and fans fired up and many are taking to social media networks to relay their fury. Wisconsin state senator Jon Erpenbach even reportedly tweeted NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell‘s phone number and wrote, “Let’s go to the phones!!”

Bret, 25, has been playing in the NFL since 2009 and says with the referee lockout the league is losing its credibility.

“It has just become one big joke,” he told

“What are they going to call next, a high-sticking or foul ball?!”

If the name sounds familiar, it’s because Bret was linked to Kim Kardashian in 2011 when InTouch magazine reported she was involved in a six-month text message affair with him while engaged to Kris Humphries.

Kim adamantly denied the affair and told Jay Leno that Bret is “some guy that I’ve never ever heard of, met, texted, spoken to, anything…I don’t even know who this person is.”
