Roddy White, Alge Crumpier, DeAngelo Hall, and Chris Houston were fined by the NFL for violating uniform regulations with tributes to Michael Vick during last week’s Monday Night Football game.
Michael Vick, Atlanta’s suspended Pro Bowl quarterback, was sentenced to 23 months in prison on federal dogfighting charges the morning of Dec. 10. The Falcons played at home against New Orleans that night and lost 34-14.
After scoring a touchdown, White displayed a “Free Mike Vick” T-shirt under his jersey.
He, along with tight end Alge Crumpler and cornerbacks DeAngelo Hall and Chris Houston, were fined $10,000 each. Crumpler, Hall and Houston all wore black eye strips with written tributes to Vick, which the NFL describes as “displaying an unauthorized personal message.”
Falcons Wide receiver Joe Horn was fined $7,500 for pulling up White’s jersey to show the black T-shirt with white, handwritten lettering.
DeAngelo Hall also had a poster of Vick on the field during pre-game introductions.
