As expected, the NFL handed out fines on Thursday to two high profile players for their actions last Sunday. Both Baltimore Ravens S Ed Reed and Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton received fines for their behavior last week. Reed was reportedly fined $55,000 dollars while Newton received a $21,000 fine.
Reed received his fine for a hit on New York Giants WR Victor Cruz. Initially, the Ravens feared that Reed might receive a suspension for the hit after administering a fourth blow to the head of an opposing player. The league could have suspended Reed, but opted instead to administer the fine.
