Bucs’ Goldson fined $60K for helmet-to-helmet hit
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson was fined $60,000 by the NFL on Friday for his helmet-to-helmet hit on St. Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey last Sunday.
The fine is the fourth this season for Goldson. He was fined $30,000 for a hit on the New York Jets' Jeff Cumberland in Week 1. He had his one-game suspension for a hit on New Orleans' Darren Sproles the following week overturned but had to pay $100,000.
Goldson was also suspended one game without pay for a hit on Atlanta's Roddy White last month.
St. Louis linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar was fined $21,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit. Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson was docked $15,750 for roughing the passer after the league said he "unnecessarily" drove Cleveland quarterback Jason Campbell to the ground, "landing on him with his full weight." Richardson is appealing the fine.
Buffalo rookie wide receiver Roberts Woods was fined $15,750 for punching Miami safety Reshad Jones in the third quarter of the Bills' 19-0 win.
