Report: Bucs QB Freeman fined $5K for unnecessary roughness

Josh Freeman's decision-making cost him more than a win over the NFC South rival Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Grimes' fourth-quarter interception of a Freeman pass sealed the Falcons' 28-24 win, and the quarterback was flagged for unnecessary roughness following the play.
