Tee Tomlinson had already locked up a roster spot before the Rams’ preseason finale against the Broncos last week, but his final exhibition game was cut short during Denver’s first drive.
Tomlinson tackled Marvin Mims Jr. by his facemask on the opening drive and was subsequently ejected. It was a dangerous way to tackle the receiver to the ground, though thankfully Mims wasn’t injured on the play.
In addition to being ejected, Tomlinson also got a letter in the mail from the league. He was fined $4,444 for the tackle, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
Tomlinson got his first taste of an NFL fine and hopefully it’ll be the last time he has to pay one.
