New Orleans Saints' Jimmy Graham says he'll keep an eye out for Bucs safety Dashon Goldson

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham referred to Tampa Bay safety Dashon Goldson as a physical and talented player Friday afternoon. But Goldson's physicality has rubbed some the wrong way, namely the NFL, which has consistently fined, and sometimes suspended, Goldson for illegal hits this season.

Goldson was one of three Bucs players fined for illegal hits after the Saints' 16-14 win at Tampa Bay in Week 2. The NFL initially suspended Goldson for his hit on the Saints' Darren Sproles, but Goldson saw his penalties reduced to a $100,000 fine.

Safety Ahmad Black received a $21,000 fine for a late hit on Graham, and the league docked defensive end Adrian Clayborn $21,000 for a hit on Drew Brees.

But Goldson has continued his habit of illegal hits. A helmet-to-helmet hit on Falcons wideout Roddy White finally landed Goldson a suspension, costing the Bucs' safety a $264,705 game check. Goldson, a former 49ers standout Tampa Bay picked up in free agency during the offseason, also received a $60,000 fine Friday for a helmet-to-helmet hit on St. Louis' Stedman Bailey in last week's game.
