Bucs’ David Fined $7,800 For Late Hit

Bucs_Levonte_David_2013Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David, an emerging player in the league who seems primed for a breakout season, not only suffered through the aftermath of his late-hit on Jets QB Geno Smith, but also got fined for his actions, according to a league source.

His misery was compounded when the NFL office fined him $7,800 for the transgression. With the Bucs 0-1 and facing a re-energized Saints team this week, and head coach Greg Schiano under fire in the locker room, Tampa’s season could be reaching a crossroads much sooner than most would expect.
