Tampa - Bucs linebacker Mason Foster did get fined for his hit on Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco a week ago. To the tune of $20,000.
That a lot of dough for a hit that appeared clean.
Foster just said he'll pay it and move on.
I just wonder if Ochocinco will keep his word and fire off a check to Foster to cover the fine.
Ochocinco said he would do so, saying that Mason's hit in question was a "great hit."
The NFL has said no player can pay another players fine.
Is that in the collective bargaining agreement?
