K.J. Wright fined for hit on Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals WR might help on appeal

New, comments

Fitz is a funny guy.

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL levied fines for infractions during last week's slate of games in Week 10. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was fined for the first time in his career for a pelvic thrust he did towards the crowd (directed at friends) and Seattle Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright will have to pay for a personal foul penalty he received.

He was fined more than $23,000 for a tackle ruled to be a personal foul in Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He tackled Larry Fitzgerald and did hit him high. It resulted in a 15-yard penalty.

Fitz popped right up and had a big smile because it benefited the team and he wasn't really hurt.

When Fitz heard of Wright's fine, he reacted on Twitter.

That prompted Wright to suggest Fitz help in his appeal of the fine. Fitz said he was willing, for a price.

Here is the exchange:

Wright said Fitz was laughing when the flag came from the official. Wright also said he apologized to Fitzgerald for the hit.
