Bucs safety Sean Jones' hit draws $20K fine



Bucs safety Sean Jones was fined $20,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Panthers receiver Legedu Naanee last Sunday.

The NFL issued the fine earlier this week and confirmed it today. Jones was flagged for unnecessary roughness on the play, though players don't necessarily have to be flagged to draw a fine.

Defensive tackle Brian Price, who was involved in a skirmish that drew a personal foul and the wrath of coach Raheem Morris, was not fined.
