Darnell Dockett picks up $30,000 in fines

Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett had a costly day at the office last Sunday.

Dockett was flagged twice for illegal hits — once for going low on Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and once for a horse collar tackle — and he got punished by the league for his transgressions on Friday. Each play will cost Dockett $15,000, leaving him $30,000 poorer overall which amounts to about one-fifth of Dockett’s game check.

The Bengals were able to turn each of Dockett’s penalties into field goal tries, but Mike Nugent only hit one of the two kicks in what turned out to be a 23-16 Bengals win.

    Dockett is a repeat offender so where are all of the cries of dirty player?? Oh, he’s not a Steelers so it’s ok.. Ladies and Gentlemen most of these fines come from playing the game we watch and love.

    I thought the penalties were supposed to increase per infraction.

    Why do they only increase for certain players?

    This is becoming a habit. He is thinking of changing his name to Darn Well Docked.

    It is worth noting that Adrian Wilson was not fined for his hit on Dalton, which called back an PP int. I gues the call was as bad as it looked on saturday…..
