Dashon Goldson fined $60,000 for illegal hit

Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson was fined $60,000 for his helmet-to-helmet hit on St. Louis Rams rookie wide receiver Stedman Bailey.

This marks his fourth fine this year, totaling nearly $450,000 in lost salary this season. Goldson was signed to a five-year, $41.5 million contract in March.

He was fined $100,000 after his one-game suspension was overturned for a hit on New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles. He was suspended for one game for his hit on Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White and docked an entire game check.
