Report: Cardinals fine Darnell Dockett six figures for incident with Kerry Rhodes

The Arizona Cardinals have reportedly fined defensive end Darnell Dockett six figures for his behavior during an argument with teammate Kerry Rhodes.

The dispute occurred near the end of the Cardinals-Jets game last week, when the Cardinals, then leading 7-6, made the plan to allow the Jets to score. The plan was made in hopes that the Cardinals would force an overtime via a touchdown and two-point conversion. Dockett strongly objected the plan and tried to make his point by spitting in Rhode's face.

Dockett apologized for the incident and Rhodes denied that Dockett spit, but the Cardinals aren't so forgiving.
