After a brawl broke out during the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New Orleans Saints, the NFL has given Bruce Arians a written warning. The former head coach is accused of instigating the brawl.
Munich/Tampa Bay – The fact that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won 20-10 over the New Orleans Saints in week two has almost become a minor issue.
Even days later, the only topic is the brawl between the two teams after wide receiver Mike Evans shoved cornerback Marshon Lattimore. Both players were ejected from the game by the referee crew, and Mike Evans was suspended for one game.
NFL warning to Bruce Arians
Now the NFL has sent a written warning to the Buccaneers and specifically against former head coach Bruce Arians. “NBC” reports that.
As a team official, he is allowed to stand on the sidelines, but there is a special sectioned off area that only referees, players and coaches are allowed to enter where Arians has been.
Mike Evans and Marshon Lattimore have gone at it three sperate times over the years.
Evans was suspended one game for what happened in 2017 – so another suspension would not be a surprise.

In addition, the NFL is said to have noted that Arians may have goaded Evans into tackling Lattimore.
What exactly is in the letter is unknown. However, it is quite possible that Arians will have to pay a fine or even be banned from the sidelines if he offends again.
As of now, however, the 69-year-old will also be on the sidelines against the Green Bay Packers in week three and will have an impact on the game.
