NFL fines Tom Brady for kicking Grady Jarrett that was missed by officials

357221009026 AF TB

After the NFL world turned upside down following an egregious roughing the passer call on Grady Jarrett, the league has announced a fine for Tom Brady after kicking the Falcons defender, per Adam Schefter.

If the phantom call wasn’t terrible enough, which Brady acknowledged as bogus, the officials missed Brady kicking Grady Jarrett following the sack.

The NFL is a joke sometimes. And it’s for situations like this. $11K is absolutely pennies to someone of Brady’s financial standing. Instead of a game-changing penalty on Brady, which would have backed the Buccaneers up 15 more yards before punting, the dense Jerome Boger calls Jarrett for unnecessary roughness. There’s a real problem with officiating in this league, and this is just an even worse look for the NFL and Tom Brady alike.
