Dockett has received a "six-figure" fine from the Cardinals for his behavior in the waning seconds in a 7-6 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed Friday.||||||| Dockett refused to go along with a coach's directive to allow the Jets to score late in the game so the Cardinals could get the ball back and go for the tying touchdown. He also had a fight with teammate Kerry Rhodes for the woeful Arizona club.
Posted Dec. 04, 2012
Rhodes has confirmed he had a run-in with teammate Darnell Dockett at the end of Sunday's game against the New York Jets. Rhodes says in an email released by the Cardinals that there was an on-field "disagreement" but emphatically denies a report that Dockett spit in his face and says the two have agreed to move on.||||||| The dispute reportedly centered on the Cardinals' desire to allow the Jets to score late in the game so the offense would get the ball to go for the tying score. Dockett didn't want to allow a touchdown. The issue became moot when Shonn Greene purposely downed the ball at the Arizona 1-yard line and the Jets ran out the clock for a 7-6 victory.
