Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown was recently fined for what looked like a fairly standard block, and J.J. Watt had a strong reaction to the NFL’s decision.
St. Brown was fined $43,709 for a block he made on a running play during his Chicago Bears’ loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 11. The NFL determined that St. Brown lowered his head to initiate contact, which led to the fine.
Watt shared a video of the block on social media Sunday. The former Defensive Player of the Year blasted the NFL for what he referred to as stealing money.
