War of words.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Bryce Treggs put a big hit on Green Bay Packers defensive back Damarious Randall during a preseason matchup two weeks ago. In case you missed it, here’s the play.

On Monday, Treggs tweeted that he received a $25,000 fine for the block. The tweet has since been deleted, but here’s what he originally said:

I made league minimum last year and I just got fined 25K. I'm starting a gofundme to pay it.

Treggs’ tweet didn’t go over well with everyone. A number of people complained that his fine was nothing to a player who made $450,000 last year.

The player who Treggs got fined for hitting also took umbrage with the receiver’s tweet.

Treggs didn’t reply to Randall directly but he did send out the following messages in defense of himself.

Treggs also retweeted his own tweet from right after the Eagles-Packers game where he said he was praying for Randall.

The feeling here is that it doesn’t seem like there was any malicious intent on Treggs’ behalf. It was just a big hit that didn’t look safe and resulted in an unfortunate injury.

Randall is still going through the league’s mandatory concussion protocol.
