RTC: Jordan Todman penalty nixed
By Michael DiRocco
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars running back Jordan Todman had his late-hit penalty nullified. Now he's working on getting the fine wiped out, too.
According to Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union, the NFL admitted the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty Todam received in the first quarter was unwarranted. He said his agent is going through the appeals process with the league to have the $8,000 fine eliminated, too. Todman was a sixth-round draft pick by San Diego in 2011 but had played in just one game until this season.
"Honestly, it could be Year 10 for me and I’d still feel like eight grand is a lot of money to have to give away,” Todman said. “Hopefully, it gets overturned and they agree with me, so I can keep my money.”
