Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is reportedly facing a financial penalty for his foul play against Grady Jarrett in Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.
According to ESPN, the 45-year-old veteran will be fined $11,139.
Brady was tackled by the share of Jarrett in the fourth quarter, this one being penalized for roughness on the game. By getting up, the pivot however directed a kick towards his assailant, which is the faulty gesture retained by the NFL.
The quarterback also reportedly tried another time to kick Jarrett in the first quarter, but did not receive a penalty or fine for the action.
This season, Brady threw seven touchdown passes and was the victim of an interception. He also completed 68% of his stints.
The Buccaneers (3-2) will face the Pittsburgh Steelers (1-4) on Sunday.
