Ndamukong Suh is now averaging one fine a month from the NFL this season.

The Detroit Lions defensive tackle picked up his third fine of the year Friday, this time $7,875 out of his pay check for a throat slashing gesture against Tampa Bay last Sunday.

In the pantheon of Suh fines, this one isn't all that big of a deal and not a ton of money to be docked. It is a pretty bang-bang fine from the NFL. He made the gesture. He picked up the fine. Done.

It just adds to what is becoming a massive amount of money for Suh to lose this season.

Suh has now been fined $139,375 this season for three fines -- $100,000 for a low block on Minnesota center John Sullivan in the first week of the season, $31,500 for a hit on Cleveland quarterback Brandon Weeden in Week 6, and now $7,875 for his latest incident.

This is in addition to the $30,000 he was fined for kicking Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin in 2012, $20,000 for unnecessary roughness against Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton in 2011, $15,000 for unnecessary roughness against Bears quarterback Jay Cutler in 2010, $7,500 for unnecessary roughness against former Browns quarterback Jake Delhomme in 2010, a $5,000 fine for gaining leverage against the New York Jets, and a two-game suspension for stomping on Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith in 2011.

All of this in spite of the fact Suh has played cleaner this season. He has had only six penalties of any kind this season for a total of 52 yards.
