Sean Davis Fined $18,321 For Personal Foul Sunday Night

Little bit of housekeeping on this Friday night. Sean Davis’ wallet got a lot lighter this week after being fined $18,321 for one of his personal fouls committed Sunday night against the Baltimore Ravens. That comes from the PPG’s Ray Fittipaldo. Davis was penalized twice but fined for his third quarter late hit.

Davis hit Alex Collins late out of bounds at the end of his long run. Here’s a look.

It’s the second time this year Davis has been fined. The NFL docked him more than $24,000 for his helmet to helmet hit against Marvin Jones earlier this season. Artie Burns was also fined in the game for removing his helmet in protest of a pass interference call.

Davis’ fine is nearly half of his weekly game check.

On the year, Davis has started all 13 games, recording 72 tackles, picked off two passes, and forced one fumble.

    What in The serious F^(#!?!?!?

    Bennett does not get a fine for an obvious cheap shot (that continues after the whistle) but Davis and Burns lose some of their paycheck??? the NFL is such BS

    IMO Bennett and Gronk should be out till the end of the season, cant completely eliminate the dangerous hits when the ball is in play, but make an example of these meatheads and punish them for the Chicken S#!+ stuff they are doing after the whistle has blown

  • Steve

    Lucas – Do you think the NFL would keep Gronk from playing against the Steelers? Last week the Pats offense was not very good, and without Gronk, they may loose another if he was not back.

  • Dakoda Baxley

    But no Bennett fine really?

  • NinjaMountie

    It’s been said but I’ll say it as well:
    Davis gets fined for this but Bennett gets a pass for what he did!!!

    And this is why Goodell and his cronies are the laughing stock of the nation.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I mean this is the organization that fines players for taking off their head after bogus calls. What else is new?

  • Marcel Chris Chauvet

    Alex, I’m bringing this up again because I am honestly confused… isn’t it illegal to leave your feet and launch yourself at another player? I was under the impression that it was. That is exactly what Weddle did to (defenseless) Jessie James. He was neither flagged nor fined. Am I completely incorrect or is the league office entirely inept?

  • Romel Roze

    The Players are getting screwed big time by the NFL. I am shocked the players association agreed to this nonsense. Some of these players will get fine so much just for playing the game they will be playing for free due to these fines.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    True.

  • Alex Kozora

    It’s only illegal if you’re making contact with the head/neck area. I know Weddle was close. I don’t remember if he nicked him or not.

  • PaeperCup

    Ridiculous. I can see why it was flagged, but even on replay it was close to legal. The player wasn’t out of bounds, and we’ve seen many a times players tight rope that sideline. That’s how Bell scored his TD against the Packers.

    So the call is borderline, but understandable. the fine completely unnecessary. I just don’t get what’s going on, why are the Steelers consequences far worse that the rest of the leagues?!

  • walter

    I agree. After seeing players tight rope the sideline for TDs, I didnt even think this was a penalty. Unless Im missing something, a fine is ridiculous

  • Jeff George

    Gronkowski out for the rest of the year? Seems pretty heavy handed there.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Yet Eric Weddle not fined for headshot to Jesse James and another Raven who hit McDonald helmet to helmet when he tried to catch a ball.

  • LucasY59

    did you see what he did? nothing about it belongs in football, yes its an excessive punishment, but it would set a standard that BS like that will not be tolerated, dirty plays after the whistle should be non-existent in Professional Football (especially when they are handing out fines and suspensions like candy in the name of player safety for stuff that happens during a play)

  • LucasY59

    If the league were actually serious about safety and player conduct (instead of making $) he would still be suspended, but we all know they just want the $$$

  • Steve

    Did see what Grok did. But $$$$ speaks and BS walks.

  • Steve

    Still thought Burfict has done worse.

  • Steve

    Sure was worth a fine and suspension. Grok even apologized after the game.

  • Steve

    Goodell is laughing all the way to the bank with his $200 mil contract he just signed.

  • walter

    it wasnt

  • LucasY59

    not arguing that, but making a example of Gronk could make it easier to come down on confict harder the next time he does something stupid (probably wont take long)
