Walker fined for unnecessary roughness

Cowboys cornerback Frank Walker has been fined $7,500 by the league for unnecessary roughness. His hit out of bounds on Dolphins tight end Anthony Fasano drew a 15-yard penalty. The Cowboys held the Dolphins to a field goal, even though the penalty set them up at the Dallas 3.

Walker is the third Dallas player to draw a fine from the league this season for an illegal hit. Receiver Kevin Ogletree was fined $7,500 for a facemask penalty on 49ers cornerback Tarell Brown in Week 2, and linebacker DeMarcus Ware was docked $15,000 after a roughing the passer penalty on Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

I'm glad he was fined. Now he will think twice about hurting the team again with such a foolish act.

I really understand about the fines but the one I really don't agree on is the fine on DeMarcus Ware. That hit was not bad.I think he got a raw deal on that one.

This is so weak....why was the fool who took Jason Witten down and into a cheerleader not even flagged...??? and our DB touches, not tackles ( and was holding the player up even to negate any "flopping')someone barely out of bounds, draws a flag, 15-yard penalty and now a fine???? right......get a grip NFL and get it right.......
