Kam Chancellor fined $20,000 for hit on Anquan Boldin

Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor got the worse end of a collision with Ravens receiver Anquan Boldin on Sunday, and now the NFL has hit Chancellor in the wallet.

Chancellor was fined $20,000 for his hit on Boldin, a league source confirmed to PFT.

The collision left Chancellor with a concussion, while Boldin wasn’t hurt, but Chancellor is the one who was fined because Chancellor went helmet-to-helmet while Boldin was a defenseless receiver.

Despite the concussion, Chancellor was a full participant in practice this week and is listed as probable for Sunday against the Rams.

    Good fine, well deserved.

    Can’t wait to read the flag football comments, of course.

    Double ouch. Your an upcoming stud, stop leading with your head bro. Your personal safety and pocket book hurting

    I think it’d be interesting to have a running total or player fine meter/counter just like the “days without an arrest” counter. Seems to me Goodell is putting together quite the treasure chest in fine money.

    Anquan Boldin is a beast. He gets hit directly helmet to helmet (one of the rare ones that actually would have been a penalty five years ago), then gets up immediately like nothing happened while the guy who hit him lays motionless on the ground for several minutes. On the sideline, Flacco asks him if he’s alright. Boldin “he’s gonna have to hit me a lot harder than that.” Beast.

    trbowman,

    A guy going all out to break up a pass with the game on the line. Man, what a horrible player… Definitely not a team player, that’s for sure. I guess he should have let Boldin catch the ball, get two feet down, and then lay a pillow down for Boldin to land on before finally tackling him.

    That’s basically what the NFL wants these days. They want bang-bang hits, clean or not, taken out of the game so the passing stats will go up even further.

    I seen so many fines this NFL season.They should give all the fine money to charity.

    Bolden’s response; “Next time, I’ll hit em harder” (to paraphase Rob Gronkowski)

  9. lilrob10201 says: Nov 18, 2011 7:19 PM

    I think if a player leads helmet to helmet he should get a warning but if he does it again then fine him.So many players getting fined makes me wonder if a kicker got fined in the NFL would that be his whole check going towards a fine ?

    How does boldin not have 10,000 yards and 50 tds-he’s big and slow , pushes off every play and gets a few pi calls every game

    Both players were running full speed. The tackle was NOT a launch. There was no spearing. Tell me, how is one player that is approximately the same height as another supposed to tackle him without any contact between their helmets? Hard to believe the Seahawks were the better team on this day, huh? Sour grapes.

    #1 If I’m not mistaken, the NFL donates this fine $$ to charity. What about the retired players? That’s a charity this $$ especially needs to go to.
    #2 I watched this game and after it happened the broadcaster said he wasn’t allowed to hit him because he was making an attempt to make a catch. Isn’t that called DEFENSE!!! I agree with the fine, but this is what the NFL has come to. Rediculous.

    I would like to see the recommended angle that Chancellor was supposed to take according to these new rules. We have seen what the league does not want but I would love to see someone diagram how this play should have been made. We are going to see defensive players get hurt as they try to not lead with their heads. If Chancellor had ducked his head below the receiver’s helmet he could have easily been seriously hurt.

    This rule says what you can’t do. No wonder coaches don’t know what to teach.

    Fines are stupid in the age of millionaire players. You want the coaches to stop this then go hockey and put them a man down for 2 minutes.

  16. bcjim says: Nov 18, 2011 10:15 PM

    never heard of him.

    That hit was the epitome of what the league is trying to prevent. Guy looked like Ryan Clark out there leading with his helmet. I was just glad to see my boy Quan shake it off like a boss while Chancellor was out for the count. He could have bought a ’07 E-Class Benz instead of getting that concussion.

    You forgot “Beat the AFC North leader”.

    I gotta wonder, are safeties going to start asking for extra money in their contracts so they can afford this crap. One fine like that per week would nearly wipe out an entire minimum salary. Chancellor was a fifth-round pick, so he’s not exactly making big bucks…I’m sure his next contract will make up for that. Dude can flat-out play.

    Whatever!

    Good hit, Kam!

    Keep it movin, baby!

    “Beast” had two drops and lost the game. In the end, I’m not sure he got the better end of anything.
