On second thought, Jenkins will appeal $15K fine for hit on Falcons QB Ryan
Eagles defensive end Cullen Jenkins was anything but shocked when he received the FedEx envelope from the NFL notifying him he'd been billed $15,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.
The contact occurred after Jenkins broke free on a bull rush up the middle.
"It's just funny to me that you can throw a punch and not get that much in a fine for it," Jenkins said. "I should have just gone up and punched him and then I could have gotten less. I don't know, it's crazy. We still don't know how the fine system really works with the amounts. It is what it is."
Jenkins says he knows of a former teammate who threw a punch getting a fraction of his bill for hitting the quarterback.
