Saints News, 11/29/13: Cam Jordan Fined $10K Over Matt Ryan Hit

New, comments

The NFL is dropping fines left and right today and Saints DE Cameron Jordan was one of the recipients. His hit on Matt Ryan in last week's game also drew a 15-yard penalty. Interestingly enough, defensive end Akiem Hicks was not fined for a similar hit that did not draw a penalty during the Saints' 17-13 victory. It seems impossible for players or fans to know what gets fined and what doesn't in today's NFL.
