The Arizona Cardinals have fined Darnell Dockett $200,000 for spitting on teammate Kerry Rhodes and defying coaches' orders during the Cardinals' 7-6 loss to the New York Jets, according to Albert Breer of NFL.com.
Dockett is appealing the fine, and the NFL Players Association has begun the process of filing a grievance on the players' behalf.
"Thank God for the @nflpa that's all I got to say... "I ain't got no worries"," Dockett tweeted on Friday.
Dockett disagreed with Rhodes and the Cardinals coaching staff about a defensive strategy to let the Jets score to give the Cardinals offense a final possession while facing an eight-point deficit. Dockett and Rhodes argued on the field, and Dockett reportedly then spit on Rhodes.
Rhodes denied Dockett spit on him.
"Yes, we had a disagreement on the field but, no he did NOT spit in my face," Rhodes said in an email released by the team Tuesday. "I'm not going to get into all the details because I think those are things you keep within the team. But Darnell and I talked after the game, we're both moving on and I'll leave it at that."

Larry Fitzgerald is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. No one will argue that. The travesty is that he is not universally considered the best receiver in the game, which is of no fault of his own. He has made it to six Pro-Bowls, has been an All-Pro on four separate occasions, and led the NFC in receiving yards in 2008. That same year he would lead the Cardinals to...

In his most frustrating game yet, Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald only caught one pass on 11 targets Sunday against the Seahawks in a 58-0 loss.Fantasy Spin:Arizona's QB situation is one of the worst we've ever seen and it's destroying Fitzgerald's fantasy value. Fitzgerald has six receptions on 37 targets over his last four games and is probably longing for the...

Poor Larry Fitzgerald. The Cardinals’ star wide receiver has had to deal with poor quarterback play ever since Kurt Warner retired, and now he’s got Vince Young hassling him over social media.
The Cardinals have gone from Kevin Kolb to John Skelton, back to Kolb, back to Skelton, to Ryan Lindley, back to Skelton and now back to Lindley this season at quarterback. Forgive us if...

Let’s face it, Arizona’s single shining moment of QB excellence was between 2005 & 2009, when Kurt Warner was under center. Before and since it has been middling at best and a disaster at worst, with the 2012 season shaping up to be a prime example of the latter.
With his team currently mired in an eight-game losing streak after starting the season 4-0, coach Ken Whisenhunt...
It’s no secret that the Arizona Cardinals need a solid starting quarterback. After watching today’s drubbing at the hands of the Seahawks, former Titans/Eagles/Bills quarterback Vince Young took to Twitter to see if he could find some work. Naturally, he figured Larry Fitzgerald would be the best guy to talk to. He also figured Twitter was the best way to go about soliciting...
On paper, tomorrow's Week 14 matchup against the Cardinals looks like an easy victory. Since starting hot at 4-0, the Arizona Cardinals have bumped into a slew of problems on both sides of the ball and slipped into a nightmare scenario, losing their last eight straight. Coach Ken Whishenhunt inexplicably benched QB John Skelton in Week 12 in favor of rookie Ryan Lindley, with...
