Charlotte Observer - [Full Article]

Carolina Panthers safety Sherrod Martin was fined $40,000 for a hit in Sunday's game at Cleveland, his fourth offense in the eyes of the league.

The amount of the fine shocked teammates, especially when you consider Tennessee's Cortland Finnegan and Houston's Andre Johnson were fined $25,000 for their on-field melee last week.

Martin was fined twice last year, then $5,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on New York Giants tight end Kevin Boss from the opener this year. Boss was knocked out of that game and missed the following week with a concussion, but Browns tight end Evan Moore continued to play last week.
