SERIOUS HIT: Michael Lockley Handed $20,000 Fine

Mentioned this in another thread, but UFA Michael Lockley, currently with Jacksonville, put a serious hit on Taylor Price in the Jags' last pres-season game against the Patriots.

Well, appearantly the league thought it was serious enough to hand Lockley a $20,000 fine.

If he makes a roster, it will be due no matter the team…however, if he does not, it will die.

Saw it–vicious hit, tough because you know he's trying to make the squad. Hopefully he won't make the same mistake again and hit legally w/ the same intensity.

Beware the talons of the Mighty Owls!

The ball as been tipped and he keeps the receiver for going after it while a teammate on D  makes the pic. Pro football has become so ……

By definition are not receivers defeneless most of the time so you can't hit them anymore? I was a TE and got hit hard plenty of times.

The coach said that it would have been a good hit by old standards…

I don't know, kind of on the fence…agree and disagree - there was some "helmet" involved, but still.

Could go either way?

Sorry to say, plain and simple, that's an illegal hit and unnecessary IMO.  You go for the head and you will be fined.

Sucks for Lockley, but come on, its football.  Yes, it was a hard it and it was questionable, but this is what preseason ball should be, guys giving 150% to try and make it onto the team.  Pretty soon the NFL will be reduced to a "two hand touch" game.
