The Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the New Orleans Saints Sunday in the Big Easy. Let’s call it the “Big Easy Brawl”. Enjoyable to watch, but there may be repercussions.
Per Pro Football Talk, the NFL is reviewing the incident and considering levying fines and/or suspensions.
Per source, the NFL is working on addressing all things related to the Bucs-Saints brawl on Sunday, including the involvement of "retired" Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians from the sideline.

The incident started with Saints’ defensive back Marshon Lattimore running his mouth (shocker I know), to the Bucs sideline. The Lattimore turned his attention to quarterback Tom Brady, that’s when all hell broke loose. Running back Leonard Fournette was the first Buc to shove Lattimore and then like a missile, Mike Evans lowered the boom.
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.

Both Lattimore and Evans will surely been fined, and as PFT states, possibly suspended. As PFT mentioned, former head coach Bruce Arians may also face disciplinary actions for supposedly encouraging Evans to go after Lattimore.
