Browns WR Josh Gordon Fined For Hit On Ravens FS Ed Reed
Nearly two weeks later, after much talking and much reviewing of film, Josh Gordon still isn't entirely sure what he did wrong.
The rookie receiver was flagged for a penalty during the Browns' game against Baltimore, after he blocked Ravens safety Ed Reed so hard on a reverse that Reed crumpled to the ground as if he'd run into a wall.
The NFL has fined him $20,000 for the hit. He is appealing the fine.
The Baylor product, who will play in front of a dozen or so family members and friends in Dallas on Sunday against the Cowboys, said one reason probably stands out above everything else for the fine.
"It's Ed Reed, though," Gordon said of the eight-time All-Pro defensive back. "It's not just anybody.
"It was just that he wasn't looking and it was a blindside hit. He never looked my way at all so that's really where the penalty came from. We were confused about it for awhile and we still are because that's my blocking responsibility and if I wouldn't have done it our runner would have gotten tackled for a loss. Either way, it was a lose-lose situation."

yep, offensive players will get fined if the league deems their block or maybe a tackle on a turnover is illegal.
offensive players just rarely get fined because they're typically trying to avoid contact with the defense unless they're blocking and most of the fines don't come on blocks.
