Green Bay Packers star Tramon Williams has received a $26,250 NFL fine for making contact with an official on Thanksgiving Day, reports

The 30-year-old cornerback has already revealed his intentions to appeal the decision, after saying that he thought he was shoving a Detroit Lions player during Thursday's 40-10 loss at Ford Field.

When asked about whether or not he'll appeal, Williams enthused: "Of course, why not? I mean, I'll appeal anyway, I think.

"You know, you got the other guy who got a fine also, he actually got ejected from the game from contacting the referee.

"I don't think I initiated the contact but I did finish the contact I guess."

The 'other guy' that Williams is referring to, is of course the Minnesota Vikings cornerback Chris Cook, who put his hands onto an official immediately after a touchdown pass against the Chicago Bears last week.

On this occasion, a replay appeared to show Williams looking away while walking forward - just behind Lions center Dominic Raiola - when the official crossed in between the two players.

However, the Packers ace still received a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

The $26,250 fine is a standard issue amount for bumping an official, and it's highly unlikely that the NFL will overturn their decision, even after an appeal.
