Bucs’ Goldson fined $60K for helmit hit

NEW YORK — Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson has been fined $60,000 by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit on St. Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey on Sunday.

The fine, announced Friday by the league, is the fourth this season for Goldson. Goldson was fined $30,000 for a hit on the New York Jets’ Jeff Cumberland in Week 1, and had his one-game suspension for a hit on New Orleans’ Darren Sproles the following week overturned but he had to pay $100,000.

Goldson also was suspended one game without pay for a hit on Atlanta’s Roddy White last month.

St. Louis linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar was fined $21,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit.

Docked $15,750 were: Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson (roughing the passer) and Buffalo wide receiver Robert Woods (throwing a punch).
