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.

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).
