Tom Brady could be fined for apparent kick of  Grady Jarrett

Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady could face fine for if he is found guilty for trying to kick Atlanta Falcons Grady Jarrett.

The NFL are looking at the Brady to determine whether Brady attempted to kick Jarrett and if that warrants a fine, according to a report from The Associated Press on Thursday.

According to reports fines for kicking are $10,500 for a first offense and $15,500 for a second.

Jarrett was flagged for slinging Brady to the ground during Tampa Bay’s 21-15 win over Atlanta on Sunday. It appeared Brady tried to kick Jarrett as both players were getting up, but he didn’t make contact.

When asked if he was aware Brady may have tried to kick Jarrett, Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles told reporters that he “didn’t see any of it so I couldn’t answer that question.”

Jarrett and Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones are automatically subject to fines for roughing penalties in Week 5 that sparked outrage among players, coaches and fans because the hits didn’t seem to warrant flags.

Fines for roughing the passer are $15,000 for a first offense and $20,000 for a second. It was the first offense this season for both Jarrett and Jones.
