Packers CB Tony Brown Fined for Penalty Against Bears

Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports that CB Tony Brown was fined for a penalty in week one against the Bears:

The penalty was the result of a blindside block of the punter in the 4th quarter. There was also another penalty involving Brown that did not result in a fine.

Brown is still a young player so this is expected to a degree. I know at his alma mater, Alabama Crimson Tide, coach Nick Sabin wouldn’t tolerate it. I doubt current Packers coach Matt LaFleur exhibits the same level of discipline in his team as Saban, but I sure wouldn’t mind seeing him try. Either way, it was a bit of a bullshit fine anyway. Also, keep in mind that Brown earns around $520k a year so the $28k fine certainly isn’t pocket change for him. There might also be a pattern forming as he was also penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct last December when the Packers played the Detroit Lions.

Here is a clip of Saban reacting to one of Brown’s penalties with Crimson Tide:

Saban doesn’t play that shit and neither should LaFleur.

As far as talent, Brown has got it. Just before committing to Alabama, he was ranked by ESPN as the second-best corner in the nation. He worked his ass off to get on the roster this season and I am certain we are going to see some fantastic plays from the guy.

    Brown has played too aggressive since he got here, now that’s it’s hit him in the wallet, maybe he’ll reign it in.
