Multiple reports say Seahawks receiver Golden Tate's paycheck will be $21,000 lighter.  Tate has been fined by the NFL for a hit on Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee.  If you haven't seen the hit, click on this link for the replay.

No penalty was called during the game.  After the game, Tate thought it was a clean hit. He made sure he watched tapes this pre-season to see what was legal and what was illegal.  Lee, himself, called the hit legal.  Tate is planning to appeal the fine.
