San Diego Chargers CB Antoine Cason was fined for his late hit on Steve Smith in the game against the Carolina Panthers. Cason had a late pop on Smith out of bounds on the sideline. Smith didn’t even get knocked to the floor on the play, but that hit cost him $7,875. That is some Christmas money that he won’t be able to spend. I think he will be alright though.
