#Patriots QB Tom Brady was fined $10,000 for unnecessary roughness in the AFC championship game, I’m told. Came on the Ed Reed slide — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 24, 2013 The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Tom Brady was fined $10,000 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness on his controversial slide in last Sunday’s AFC title game. The incident came at the end of the second quarter when Brady scrambled out of the pocket and slid cleats high into Ravens safety Ed Reed. It was an unusually dirty and unsportsmanlike showing from Brady, who apologized to Reed following the game. Reed accepted Brady’s apology and said “I respect Brady and his game for all it stands for, and I know he’s not a dirty player.” The fine may come as a surprise to some fans around the league who love to ***** and moan about the NFL constantly protecting and defending their ‘Golden Boy’ in Brady.
