HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) - Jets linebacker Eric Barton was fined $7,500 by the NFL for his hit on Drew Brees in last weekend's playoff game at San Diego, and said Thursday he plans to appeal the penalty.

Barton was flagged for roughing-the-passer after hitting Brees in the head with his forearm and elbow on fourth down. The penalty nearly cost the Jets the game, because San Diego got a fresh set of downs and scored the tying-touchdown one play later to send the game into overtime.

It was dumb of Barton to do. Im sure he got caught up in the moment, but wow, could you imagine how bad he would feel if they lost that game?

Barton was 3-feet wide right from being the team jackarse.
