New Orleans, La. - On Wednesday, Saints quarterback Drew Brees learned that Bucs safety Dashon Goldson is no longer suspended after winning his appeal of a punishment for a helmet-to-helmet hit on the Saints' Darren Sproles in last Sunday's game. Goldson's one-game suspension now has been reduced to a $100,000 fine.
The normally measured Brees gave a strong reaction.
"He certainly has no regard for the rules in the middle," Brees said. "He's going after guys' heads. You can see it," Brees said. "Obviously, $100,000 is a pretty hefty fine. He's had a lot of those."
Since 2010, Goldson has actually tallied 15 personal fouls, the most in the league.
"I got no sympathy for that," Brees said. "Obviously, I care for our guys and I don't want to see that happen to our guys. And I know the rules. It's tough for guys playing the safety position. In the middle, things happen fast. But then again, there's some instances where it's pretty obvious that a guy was going after another guy's head. And that happened on at least two occasions in our game."
