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.
