Panthers safety Sherrod Martin the latest victim of helmet-to-helmet fines
Carolina Panthers safety Sherrod Martin was the latest victim of the NFL cracking down on helmet-to-helmet hits. The second-year player was fined $40,000 on Wednesday for his illegal hit on Cleveland Browns tight end Evan Moore, according to the Associated Press.
This was Martin’s second fine of the 2010 season. In the first game of the season, Martin was fined $5,000 for a vicious hit on New York Giants tight end Kevin Boss—which gave him a concussion. Martin has now been fined four times through the first 26 games of his career.
The Panthers look to end their five-game losing streak as they take on the Seattle Seahawks this weekend.
