Arizona Cardinals kicker Jay Feely has said that even though he is a placekicker, he is also a real football player. Feely is now getting fined like real football players, as well.

Feely was fined $7,875 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness on Friday, reports the Associated Press.  Feely delivered a late hit out of bounds on a kickoff Sunday in the Cardinals' overtime victory over the Miami Dolphins. Feely did go on to kick the game-winning 46-yard field goal to give the Cardinals a 24-21 victory.
