GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers linebacker Brad Jones has been fined 15,750 by the NFL for a roughing the passer personal foul in Sundays win over the Detroit Lions.A league spokesperson noted that the fine was assessed because Jones struck Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in the head area on a hit.It was pretty expensive, Jones told FOXSportsWisconsin.com on Friday. I got a note in my locker, and I was like, Man, thats a lot of money. Its a lot of money.Jones was flagged for a 15-yard penalty late in the second quarter. It was one of two personal fouls committed by Jones in the game, but his facemask penalty did not result in a fine.Im definitely going to appeal it, absolutely, Jones said.Its not the first time in Jones four-year NFL career that hes been fined.My rookie year, I got fined for hitting Kurt Warner below the knees, Jones said. That was 5,000. This one is three times that. Theyre tripling it.This is the second straight game in which a Packers player has been fined. After Week 9, tight end Ryan Taylor was fined 21,000 by the NFL for an illegal block during a kickoff return.Fines are coming down very heavy this year, Jones said. I didnt think it was malicious or anything. Hopefully the appeal will go well. Follow Paul Imig on Twitter.
