Carolina Panthers TE Brandon Williams plans to appeal $8,268 fine for fight

Carolina Panthers tight end Brandon Williams will be $8,268 lighter as soon as he gets official word from the NFL.

Williams was told by his agent that the NFL will fine him for his involvement in the first-half scuffle with multiple New Orleans Saints players in Carolina’s 41-10 victory on Sunday. Williams plans to appeal.

Williams has been expecting the fine since his post-game interview. He said he was defending himself and that another Saints player hit him first before he started throwing punches.

Williams was ejected for his role in the scuffle.
