The Bucs got a big win against the visiting Dallas Cowboys in Week 1, but linebacker Lavonte David drew a big fine in the season opener. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, David was fined $12,875 for taking off his helmet on the field and slamming it after almost picking off a Dak Prescott pass in the first half.
