Less than 24 hours after Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson drilled Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin with a helmet-to-helmet hit, the NFL announced that it would fine Robinson $40,000.
However, after more time to review the incident, that fine has been reduced.
On appeal, Robinson’s fine was reduced to $25,000, according to Charley Casserly of CBS. That makes it the second season in a row Robinson has been reduced on appeal: Last year he was fined $50,000 and had that fine reduced on appeal as well.
But Robinson apparently isn’t in a good mood. He reportedly got into a shoving match with some Lions players during pregame warmups at Ford Field today.
