49ers_Donte_Whitner_2013In Week Three, 49ers safety Donte Whitner was penalized for a hit on Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw that he said was a bad call.

The NFL didn’t disagree, passing on the opportunity to fine Whitner. Whitner was back at the complaint department after getting penalized for hitting Rams wide receiver Chris Givens above the neck when Givens was a defenseless receiver, but the NFL saw things differently this time. Whitner said Tuesday that he was fined $21,000 by the league, a penalty that he’s appealing.
