Though the league declined to punish Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib for his supposed actions during the lockout, his organization isn’t so lucky.

That’s the word from multiple reports this morning, via the St. Petersburg Times, that the NFL has fined Tampa Bay $250,000 for impermissible contact that occurred during the work stoppage.

Which sounds somewhat surprising if you believe the newspaper’s sources, who revealed the reasons Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris supposedly contacted his players.

The day after CBS’ Charley Casserly reported on The NFL Today that the Buccaneers would be fined a six-figure number, Morris admitted to speaking with Talib (who was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon for an incident that occurred in March) and tight end Kellen Winslow after his wife had a baby.

A Times source said Morris had seven phone conversations with various players during the lockout. Three of those calls took less than a minute. According to the paper, the NFL checked the team’s phone record to determine if violations had occurred.

What a joke. If it was the patriots they would take away a draft choice and Kraft's cell phone.
