Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady may have benefitted from the controversial roughing-the-passer call on Atlanta Falcons defensive lineman Grady Jarrett last week, but his reaction to the hit is costing him money.
Brady was fined $11,139 by the NFL for kicking Jarrett after the play, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The quarterback wasn’t penalized on the play, but the foul called on Jarrett helped seal the win for the Buccaneers, and led to much criticism from around the NFL.
Since the game, Brady has joked multiple times about the questionable call, poking fun at anyone who thinks that he complains to the refs for calls all of the time.
