49er hit with fine for hit on Brees

The 49er who tackled Drew Brees last Sunday will pay a fine.

$15,750 is the amount Ahmad Brooks must forfeit from his 2013 salary.

The penalized clothesline collision changed the course of Sunday’s game in the Saint’s favor.

Brooks’ contract this season pays him 2.7 million dollars.

The NFL’s fine on Brooks equates to .6% of his earnings.

Protesting, future hall of fame linebacker Ray Lewis says he’ll pay half of the fine because the NFL has become watered down.

NFL rules state a player can’t make forcible contact to the head or neck area, even if the contact starts below the neck.
