Vontaze Burfict fined $25,000
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was fined $25,000 for twisting Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and tight end Greg Olsen's ankles.
Burfict was warned that he could be suspened or fined more heavily in the future for repeat offenses.
Burfict was accused of intentionally twisting the ankles of the Panthers' players.
Burfict has a reputation for playing over the edge.
"Punishment needs to go beyond a fine," Olsen said . "Guys like that don't learn from that stuff. He's been fined a hundred times for headhunting, and he did it to Kelvin [Benjamin] again. You watch the film; that's just what he is.
"At some point, if the NFL wants to really say they care about guys' safety, they've got to start putting guys out for weeks. Me and Cam are lucky we aren't out for weeks, or Kelvin isn't out for weeks. If you're going to start putting guys on other teams out, then the ramifications need to equal that."
