Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was fined $21,000 by the NFL today for launching himself into Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich and delivering a helmet to helmet hit last week.

Rodgers-Cromartie repsonded to the news of his fine by saying he doesn’t have the money.

“Twenty-one thousand. I ain’t even got that,” Rodgers-Cromartie said, hopefully joking.

DRC says he won’t hit Leftwich anymore.

“I won’t hit him no more, I’ll tell you that much,” Rodgers-Cromartie said. “It’s not even a vicious hit… shoot, he got up right from it. I mean, I’ll say I left my feet. I can understand that. I can understand a fine coming.”
