Saints lineman fined more for roughing passer than he makes
in a week – (Yardbarker)

New Orleans Saints defensive tackle David
Onyemata is learning a very tough lesson after being hit with two
roughing the passer penalties in Week 1.The third-year player only
makes $630,000 all year long, which breaks down to just over
$37,000 per game. By NFL standards, he’s dirt cheap.One thing that
isn’t cheap is the fine the NFL just levied against Onyemata for
those two penalties.The first occurred in the third quarter of last
Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Onyemata was
penalized over that new, controversial rule that states defenders
cannot use their body weight to land on the quarterback. The second
was helmet-to-helmet hit against Ryan Fitzpatrick.According to
NOLA.com, the NFL fined Onyemata $20,054 for each foul for a total
of $40,108.Yeah, that’s more than what he makes per week, which is
a brutal penalty to levy against a player who’s just out there
giving his all to the game he loves.
