Calvin Pace Fined $15,000 for Hit on Michael Vick

Calvin Pace was fined $15,000 for a hit on a Michael Vick touchdown pass Sunday that resulted in a roughing the passer penalty. He is not happy about it.



Pace told reporters Thursday he planned to appeal the fine. He told ESPNNewYork.com that he didn’t read the letter sent to him from the league. "I saw $15,000 and threw it in the trash," Pace told the website.

It looked like kind of a phantom call at the time on Sunday. It seems like the call was based on a blow to Vick's head, but it was not entirely clear that was what happened on the replay. I can only assume the league examined this closely from every angle imaginable. Based on the picture posted here, Calvin might have a difficult time getting it overturned. We will just have to wait and see to find out how things turn out after the appeal.
