Panthers LB Thomas Davis fined more than $48,000 for tackle


CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) — Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis says he has been fined more than $48,000 for a tackle he made during Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

In an Instagram post Davis made on Thursday, Davis expressed his frustration with the fine, even alluding to retirement. 

As a 13yr vet that honestly tries to play the game of football the way it’s supposed to be played! I can’t imagine that this freakin’ tackle would cost me $48,620! Not a single part of this play was dirty! I love playing this game but if this was illegal then it’s time for me to retire! #AppealOnDeck” Davis wrote in the post. 

The post suggests that Davis will appeal the fine in the near future.
