Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Richard Seymour has been fined $25,000 for punching Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday, Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reports.
Seymour punched Roethlisberger after the quarterback completed a 22-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders in the second quarter of the Steelers' 35-3 win on Sunday. Seymour was ejected from the game, the second time he's been disqualified from a game in less than a calendar year.
Last December, Seymour was fined $10,000 for hitting then-Cleveland Browns running back Jerome Harrison after the play was over.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
