Bills DT Kyle Williams Fined $15K For Hit On Patriots QB Tom Brady
Kyle Williams will be $15,000 lighter in the wallet Friday when the NFL does its weekly announcement of fines, and the Bills’ defensive tackle said he doesn’t understand what he did wrong.
He knows he was flagged for a late hit on Tom Brady in last week’s 52-28 loss to New England, one that was dubious to begin with, and he really didn’t think he’d be fined.
“I could understand if I dove at him head-first and hit him or hit him behind the legs and dove at him with my shoulder,” Williams said. “But I hit him with my arm (on Brady’s calf) and get a $15,000 fine for hitting the guy with the ball. I don’t get it.”
Williams said he asked the official who threw the flag, referee John Parry, what he did wrong, and got no response.
“I asked the official during the game, ‘What do you want me to do?’ He didn’t say anything,” Williams said. “Of course, I wasn’t exactly calm when I asked him. But I’m trying to figure out; you get blocked down, you’re going down, the guy’s still got the ball. I didn’t dive into the side of the leg. I didn’t spear him in the side of the leg. I hit him with my forearm in his calf and he went down. You got guys out there hitting (Ryan Fitzpatrick) in his chest with their helmet when he’s going down. I don’t know what you’re supposed to do.”
