The incident occurred when Jarrett was flagged for slinging Brady to the ground during Tampa Bay's 21-15 win over Atlanta. Brady tried to kick Jarrett as both players were getting up, but he didn't appear to make contact. Fines for kicking are $11,139 for a first offense and $16,444 for a second. When asked if he was aware Brady may have tried to kick Jarrett, Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles told ESPN that he "didn't see any of it so I couldn't answer that question." Jarrett and Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones are automatically subject to fines for roughing penalties in Week 5 that sparked outrage among players, coaches and fans because the hits didn't seem to warrant flags. Fines for roughing the passer are $15,000 for a first offense and $20,000 for a second. It was the first offense this season for both Jarrett and Jones.
