Former NFL QB Shaun King Says Florida's Wideouts Should Boycott Playing Until Jeff Driskel Is Benched

A few weeks back, former Florida running back Emmitt Smith, one of the all-time NFL greats, tweeted out his displeasure with Florida starting quarterback Jeff Driskel. Apparently he's not the only former pro who doesn't seem to understand why Driskel is still playing for the Gators.

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Shaun King, who now does radio for NBC Sports, believes that Florida's wide receivers should "boycott" playing until head coach Will Muschamp makes a change behind center. He thinks that Driskel is putting his wideouts in dangerous situations.

King's words come after an abysmal first half by Driskel against Tennessee. He's currently 10-of-18 for 48 yards and one interception. Florida has been shut out thus far.

It's safe to say that Florida fans agree with King. Will Muschamp make a change soon?
