49ers’ Jimmie Ward and Fred Warner fined a total of $21,450 for plays vs. Saints

Nov 21, 2020 at 12:51 PM--


Two San Francisco 49ers players were fined as a result of plays from last weekend's loss against the New Orleans Saints, according to a report from NBC Sports Bay Area.

Safety Jimmie Ward was fined $15,000 for unnecessary roughness on his hit on Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith, who suffered a concussion.

The league also fined linebacker Fred Warner $6,450 for his grab at the face mask of wide receiver Deonte Harris.


The good news is that the NFL didn't fine defensive end Kentavius Street for what should have been credited as a sack against Saints quarterback Drew Brees. The hit ended up knocking Brees out of the game, and the quarterback was later diagnosed with a collapsed lung and fractured ribs. Instead of earning his first NFL sack, Street was flagged with a roughing-the-passer penalty.


On Friday, the Saints placed Brees on injured reserve, and the quarterback will miss at least the next three games.


The lack of a fine should not come as a surprise. General manager John Lynch said on Thursday while discussing how disappointed he was that a penalty was called on the play that the league informed him that his defender would not be fined.

"That was his first career sack," Lynch said during a KNBR interview, "and it got taken from him on something that I don't think was a penalty, and I think we can all agree to that now. And to do it against a legend like Drew Brees, that stunk."

Fred Warner is one of the best linebackers in the game. Some, like Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, would say he is the best linebacker in the game. "I'm happy for you, man. I really mean that," Rodgers told Warner after the two teams met during Week 9. "Unfortunately, name recognition means too much. Ain't nobody better. There really isn't. You're the best, and everybody knows it. The film don't lie. You should be All-Pro." The hardworking San Francisco 49ers linebacker is always looking to get better, though. He spoke with reporters
