The NFL has fined Seattle Seahawks receiver Golden Tate 21,000 for the blind side hit on Dallas Cowboys inside linebacker Sean Lee. The hit was illegal because Sean Lee was considered a defenseless player since he didn’t see the hit coming according to league rules.
Tate was not penalized for the hit during the game which was puzzling.
Sean Lee was asked how he felt about the hit. “I don’t blame Tate for blocking me, that’s a part of football. Only issue I had a little bit was with him celebrating like he did.”
