Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson was notified last Friday by the league that his fine for a hit on wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was reduced from $40,000 to $25,000, according to his agent Jason Chayut.
“He is pleased with the reduction,” Chayut said on Monday.
Robinson was originally fined $40,000 for striking Maclin with his helmet. He appealed the decision. The play occurred in the Falcons’ 35-31 win over the Eagles on Sept. 18.
Robinson also had a fine reduced from $50,000 to $25,000 last season for hit on Philadelphia’s DeSean Jackson.
