Morning Tailgate: Brooks Fined for Brees Hit

Posted Nov 20, 2013

Ahmad Brooks has reportedly been fined for his hit on Drew Brees.

Will Ray Lewis be a man of his word?

That’s a question worth consideration on Wednesday morning.

According to ESPN’s NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Ahmad Brooks will be fined $16,000 for his hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

Earlier in the week, Lewis said he would pay half of the fine if Brooks were to be billed for the late-game penalty in San Francisco’s 23-20 road loss in New Orleans.
According to Matt Barrows the Sacramento Bee, Brooks will appeal the fine.
