A pair of shots to the head led to a pair of huge fines from last week’s Buccaneers-Jets game.
Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson was fined $30,000 for unnecessarily striking the head and neck area for his shot to Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland. That is, indeed, a “significant number.”
On the other side, Jets safety Dawan Landry was hit with a $21,000 fine for hitting Bucs wide receiver Mike WIlliams in the head.
It almost makes the $7,875 Bucs linebacker Lavonte David was fined for hitting Jets quarterback Geno Smith out of bounds seem quaint.
