Ricardo Lockette Fined $10k For Punch In Chiefs-Seahawks Game


Bump up that fine total to $110,000 for the Seattle Seahawks for their actions in the Kansas City Chiefs win last Sunday.

Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette was fined $10,000 for punching Chiefs safety Kurt Coleman during a De’Anthony Thomas punt return. Lockette was penalized on the play and then ejected. Here’s the Kansas City Star’s report:

"Two days after the league slapped a six-figure penalty on Lynch for refusing to speak with the media following Seattle’s loss, ProFootballTalk.com confirmed with the NFL on Friday that the league has levied a $10,000 fine against special-teams player Ricardo Lockette for punching Chiefs safety Kurt Coleman during a punt return."

Between Marshawn Lynch refusing to meet with the media after the game and Lockette’s punch, the Seahawks’ trip to KC has been quite expensive. Lynch was fined $100,000 for not speaking with the media when he was required to by the NFL. This is not the first time he has pulled this stunt so that’s why the NFL levied such a steep fine. When he met with the media later in the week he refused to answer questions and instead talked about his favorite song. Lynch clearly does not give a crap about what people think of him.
