NFL Hands Out Fines All Around
NEW YORK (AP) — Atlanta safety William Moore and Miami linebacker Philip Wheeler were each fined more than $20,000 by the NFL on Friday for illegal hits during games last weekend.
Moore was docked $22,050 for hitting Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate in the head and neck area, a blow that drew a penalty in the Falcons' loss last Sunday. It was the fourth time this season that Moore had been fined.
Wheeler was fined $21,000 for his hit in the head and neck area of Tampa Bay quarterback Mike Glennon last Monday night. Dolphins teammate and starting center Mike Pouncey was docked $7,875 for punching the helmet of Buccaneers defensive lineman Akeem Spence, which drew an unnecessary roughness penalty.
San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick was docked $7,875 for grabbing the facemask of Carolina's A.J. Klein while he was being sacked, a rare fine for a quarterback.
Detroit defensive linemen Nick Fairley and Willie Young were both fined $15,750 for hits on Chicago quarterback Josh McCown. Fairley threw McCown to the turf after the quarterback released the ball, drawing a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty. Young was fined for a helmet-to-helmet hit on McCown.
Cincinnati defensive end Carlos Dunlap was fined $15,750 for a horse-collar tackle on his sack of Baltimore's Joe Flacco. Bengals safety Chris Crocker was docked $7,875 for a facemask penalty.
Tennessee safety Bernard Pollard, Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews and Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett were also fined for rough hits on quarterbacks, each docked $15,750.
Philadelphia linebacker Najee Goode was fined $10,000 for a hit to the helmet of Green Bay quarterback Scott Tolzien.
St. Louis cornerback Trumaine Johnson was fined $7,875 for making a throat-slashing gesture during the Rams' victory over Indianapolis.
Also docked $7,875 by the league were: Chicago's Charles Tillman (facemask), Green Bay's Mike Neal (facemask), Tampa Bay's Eric Page (late hit) and New Orleans' Kevin Reddick (late hit).
