(TSX / STATS) -- Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Bryce Treggs announced on Twitter that he has been fined $25,000 by the NFL.

While Treggs did not disclose the reason for the financial punishment Monday, it could stem from his high hit on Green Bay Packers defensive back Damarious Randall during the teams' preseason opener on Aug. 10.

"I made league minimum last year and I just got fined 25K. I'm starting a gofundme to pay it," tweeted the 23-year-old Treggs, who made $450,000 last season.

Treggs unleashed a shot to the head of Randall during a three-yard run by LeGarrette Blount in the first quarter of their game. Randall, who sustained a concussion on the play, took to Twitter to convey that he thought Treggs' hit was dirty.

"Yo broke (expletive) shouldn't play dirty then," Randall said in response to Treggs' post.

Treggs, who was not assessed a penalty on the play, caught seven passes for 91 yards in the first preseason game. He has since missed time with leg soreness.
