The NFL has fined Tom Brady $11,139 for attempting to kick Atlanta Falcons defensive end Grady Jarrett on the play where a controversial roughing the passer was called during the Bucs’ 21-15 victory last Sunday over the Falcons.
The NFL notified Brady of the fine Friday after reviewing the play where Jarrett was flagged for unnecessary roughness for throwing Brady to the ground.
In retaliation, Brady kicked his foot up while on the ground but did not appear to make contact with Jarrett.
The NFL fine for striking/kicking/kneeing is $11,139 for a first offense and $16,444 for a second offense.
It’s not the first time Brady has been fined for attempting to kick another player. In 2013, Brady was fined $10,000 for attempting to kick former Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed.
