Mason Foster fined by NFL for Ochocinco Hit

Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie linebacker Mason Foster was fined $20,000 today for this illegal hit on New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco. Foster hasn’t even collected his first professional paycheck yet and is already in the red.

I shot this image during the game and haven’t seen any other still photos of the hit on any of the wires or in print.
Chad Ochocinco is offering to pay the fine for the rookie after calling the hit “clean”.
Lets see what the league says about that…..

Chargers in Florida

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers dropped out of the NFL playoff picture with 4 consecutive losses to end the season. To say the fans were upset would be an understatement. Tampa had high hopes once again this year, only to collapse like they have the past few years.

The “good news” for the city is that this years Superbowl will be held at Raymond James Stadium in February. I have been granted access to the week of game festivities and hopefully we be blessed with a pass to actually shoot the game, only time will tell. Here are a few photos of the Buccaneers playing the visiting San Diego Chargers.
