Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie On Fine: 'I Ain't Even Got That'

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie reacted to his $21,000 fine at Eagles practice on Friday.

"Twenty-one thousand. I ain't even got that," Rodgers-Cromartie said, presumably joking, when told of the fine.

Rodgers-Cromartie was given the fine by the NFL for his hit on Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich in the Eagles Aug. 9 preseason game against Pittsburgh. Rodgers-Cromartie was flagged for unnecessary roughness on the hit.


Rodgers-Cromartie told reporters that he was notified of the fine at practice. When asked about the speculation that the hit could have drawn a six-figure fine, the cornerback was incredulous.

"It's not even a vicious hit... shoot, he got up right from it. I mean, I'll say I left my feet. I can understand that. I can understand a fine coming."

The fine was the first for Rodgers-Cromartie who is in his fifth NFL season.
