Ty Cobb would have been proud.
While Reed was unsuccessful in avoiding Brady, the Patriots quarterback couldn't escape the NFL. The league fined Brady $10,000 for the slide, a source informed of the fine told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport on Wednesday.
The whole incident seems blown out of proportion. It looked like Brady instinctively put the leg up to protect himself from the oncoming Reed -- which isn't an unreasonable reaction. It didn't look like there was any ill intent, and, unlike Cobb, Brady isn't known as a dirty player.
