Buccaneers S Dashon Goldson Fined A 'Significant Amount' For Hit On Jeff Cumberland
Bucs safety Dashon Goldson said he was fined a "pretty significant" amount for his hit on Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland Sunday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times.
Goldson received a personal foul penalty for the hit, when he leaped and lead with his shoulder in striking Cumberland high. Cumberland, who was in mid-air trying to catch a pass down the field, was considered a "defenseless receiver," which is why the hit drew a flag.
Goldson said Sunday, and still believes, the hit was clean. When asked if the fine was "justified," Goldson was diplomatic.
"The refs have a tough job, they got to call it like they see it," Goldson said. "But I got to play it, I got to play football."
