The NFL is reviewing Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett’s disputed penalty against Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady to determine if Brady attempted to kick Jarrett and whether that warrants a fine, The Associated told Press a person close to the file.

The person spoke to the AP on Thursday on condition of anonymity because the league notifies players of fines Friday. Fines for kicking are $10,500 for a first offense and $15,500 for a second.

Jarrett was reported for knocking Brady to the ground in Tampa Bay’s 21-15 win over Atlanta on Sunday. It appears Brady tried to kick Jarrett as the two players stood up, but he didn’t make contact.

Jarrett and Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones are automatically subject to fines for gross penalties that sparked outrage from players, coaches and fans because hits didn’t appear to warrant flags.

Fines for roughing up the smuggler are $15,000 for the first offense and $20,000 for the second. It was the first offense this season for Jarrett and Jones.
