Dashon Goldson Fined; Not SuspendedSeptember 18th, 2013
Bucs safety Dashon Goldson will not be suspended for the Bucs game with New England for headhunting, but he will be $100,000 lighter in the wallet.
Kevin Patra of NFL.com has the details.
Bucs safety Dashon Goldson had his one-game suspension overturned, NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday, according to a league source.
Goldson was suspended by the NFL for an illegal hit on New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles in Week 2.
Rapoport reported that Goldson will be fined $100,000 for the hit, equaling the record price tag Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was hit with for being a habitual violator of the NFL’s safety rules.
Obviously Joe is happy about this. The Bucs secondary needs all hands on deck when facing Tom Brady, Bill Belicheat and the Patriots this Sunday.
Playing without Goldson would have been a major blow.
