Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Says He Can’t Afford to Pay $21K Fine for Illegal Hit
The only problem with the hit was that DRC left his feet.
The reason he didn’t get suspended is because he hit him with his shoulder and not his head. I am going to assume he is joking about the $21k since they take it out of their paycheck, but you never know with NFL players these days.
On Friday, Rodgers-Cromartie, who the NFL determined “unnecessarily struck a defenseless player in the head and neck area,” was fined $21,000.
The monetary punishment, apparently, is too much for the 26-year-old.
For the record, he’s set to make more than $1.9 million in the final year of the nearly $16 million contract he signed as a Cardinal in 2008. So, either he’s joking or needs to keep better tabs on his finances.
