Adrian Clayborn Fined For Hit on Brees

This is getting silly. I actually did not find this hit a penalty. Sissy league.

NFL fines Bucs' Adrian Clayborn $21,000 for illegal hit on New Orleans Saints' Drew Brees in Week 2, source says | NOLA.com

Bucs defensive end Adrian Clayborn became the third Tampa Bay player to receive a fine this week as the league docked Clayborn $21,000 for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Drew Brees early in the second quarter in Week 2, according to a league source.

I am with you on this... didn't think it warranted a fine.

I thought the flag was enough, it wasn't intentional...

Why was he fined? That was one of few legal hits the Buccs landed last week

Me thinks the NFL is just trying to get rich.

Re: Adrian Clayborn Fined For Hit on Brees

I don't think it was intentional but he hit the quarterback in the helmet, with his helmet. That is going to get nailed every time these days.

I also think the league saw the tape of that whole game and realized that team plays over the line so they're trying to reel things in.

League sending a message. The hit by Black on Graham was the only rediculous one I saw all game.
