LB Mason Foster Fined $20K For Chad Ochocinco Hit

Buccaneers linebacker Mason Foster was fined $20,000 by the league Wednesday for his hit on Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco last week, reports The Tampa Tribune. The rookie drew an unnecessary roughness penalty in the first quarter of the Buccaneers’ 31-14 preseason loss to the Patriots.

Ochocinco was about to catch a pass from Tom Brady when Foster hit him high, separating the receiver from the football. Foster’s agent, Steve Caric, told the Tribune he will appeal the fine on Foster’s behalf. Ochocinco had no problem with the hit and informed Foster via Twitter that he would reimburse the rookie if the NFL fined him.
