Williams fined $7,875 for slapping Sherman

Washington offensive lineman Trent Williams was fined $7,875 by the NFL this week for slapping Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman after last Sunday’s Seattle vs. Washington NFC Wild Card matchup.

Sherman said that Williams walked up to him after the game and threatened to hit him. Sherman told him to go ahead, and Williams followed through with his threat by hitting Sherman with an open right hand to his face.

Williams later apologized to Sherman after the incident.

“He apologized and all of that,” Sherman said this week. “It’s done.”
