NFL fines Darnell Dockett $15,000 for late hit

Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett has been fined $15,000 for a late hit last Sunday in his team’s loss at Seattle.

Dockett was called for a late hit when he dove into the back of wide receiver Mike Williams, who was already down. The league socked Dockett with a fine, according to Mike Sando of ESPN.com.

It’s not the first time the league has come after Dockett for some questionable play against the Seahawks. He was fined last season for pressing his elbow into the neck of Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.
