NFL fines Falcons safety Richie Grant for unnecessary roughness

Atlanta Falcons safety Richie Grant is the latest member of the team to receive a fine from the NFL for unnecessary roughness.

Grant has been fined $12,528 for his hit on Cardinals tight end Trey McBride in the third quarter of Sunday’s loss in Arizona, ESPN’s Michael Rothstein reported on Saturday afternoon.

The secondary has received a handful of fines already this season. Last week, cornerback Dee Alford was fined $4,853 for an unnecessary roughness violation against the Vikings.

In Week 9, cornerback Jeff Okudah and safety Jessie Bates received fines of $16,391 and $21,855, respectively. The Falcons are off this weekend before returning in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints on the road.
