Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fined $250,000 By NFL For Improper Contact During Lockout

According to an Adam Schefter report, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were fined $250,000 for having improper contact with players during the NFL lockout.

It was reported by Pro Football Talk at the end of September that the NFL had fined three teams a significant amount of money for improper contact with players during the lockout. One of the teams reportedly hit in the coffers? The Buccaneers, because of phone calls head coach Raheem Morris made to a few players. The NFL initially did not release what teams they fined or what amount they were fined, but today Adam Schefter reported on his twitter feed Tampa Bay was hit with a bill for $250,000:

NFL wound up fining the Buccaneers a whopping $250,000 for allegedly having contact with their players during the lockout.

Not that it really matters to the billionaire Glazers, but Raheem Morris, that is one hell of an expensive phone bill.
