Saints DT David Onyemata Fined More Than His Game Check For Roughing The Passer Penalty

New Orleans defensive tackle David Onyemata was fined $40,108 for his two roughing-the-passer penalties in Week 1, an amount that actually exceeds his game check of $37,059:

Luckily, Onyemata can appeal to have his fine reduced because it exceeds 50 percent of his salary, per the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement. Players can appeal if a fine for one offense exceeds 25 percent of their weekly check or a fine for two offenses exceeds 50 percent.

Onyemata was a fourth round pick by the Saints in 2016.
