Dockett Dinged $5K for Tweet

Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett was fined $5,000 for tweeting inside the 90-minute window prior to the start of his team's 17-13 win over the St. Louis Rams in Week One.

"AMEN!!!!!!!!!!", Dockett tweeted at 3:55pm ET on Sunday, 20 minutes before kickoff.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco was fined $25,000 for using Twitter during a pre-season game. It was unlikely that Dockett was going to get off scot-free for violating the league's policy.

Dockett's teammate Calais Campbell was fined $5,000 for a late-hit on Rams quarterback Sam Bradford.
