Cards' Okeafor hit with $7,500 fine

Chike Okeafor's facemask penalty against the Packers in Week 17 drew a $7,500 fine from the NFL.

Okeafor earned $4.5 million in salary this season. That works out to $264,705.90 in salary per week over a 17-week season.

The fine works out to 2.83 percent of one game check.

Sort of puts that $7,500 figure in perspective, doesn't it?

It's the equivalent of an $83.33 fine for someone earning $50,000 a year.
