Biggs: Fines come out of Cardinals-Giants game
NFL charities cashed in when the league got done handing out fines coming out of Arizona’s upset last Sunday night at the New York Giants.
Cardinals safety Antrel Rolle was docked $7,500 for a hit on tight end Kevin Boss that the league deemed to be “unnecessarily striking a defenseless receiver.’’ According to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger, Boss felt after effects from the hit for a few days, but still managed to hang on for the catch on the play.
Cardinals right tackle Levi Brown was fined $5,000 for a chop block.
The Giants had to pay up too. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw was fined $5,000 for striking Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett in the facemask, and safety Michael Johnson got a $5,000 for a shot to the head of quarterback Kurt Warner.
