RT Jeremy Trueblood hit with $7,500 fine



RT Jeremy Trueblood is among the Bucs' most emotional players, and he displayed as much during an outburst in Sunday's game at Atlanta.

After being violently pulled off a pile by a defender, Trueblood launched into an understandable rant. Problem is, he took his helmet off while still on the field. That's a definite no-no in the NFL. As a result, Trueblood was assessed the standard $7,500 fine.

Trueblood has developed a reputation for being fined for a variety of offenses, almost all of which are a product of his emotional style of play. He was fined at least $25,000 for four different offenses last season (that we know of) and once was assessed a $15,000 fine making for impermissible contact with an official.
