EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -Minnesota Vikings defensive end Ray Edwards calls his $25,000 fine for hits against Tampa Bay two weeks ago ``ridiculous'' and ``outrageous.''
The NFL fined Edwards on Friday for a late hit on Bucs quarterback Jeff Garcia and what the league called a leg whip on an offensive lineman.
When asked about it Monday, Edwards said, ``No offense to women, but men don't wear panties. We chose to play this game. We don't cry when we get cracked unexpectedly. That fine is what it is. Just got to go out there and play ball and have fun.''
Edwards is appealing the fine.
He says he respects the league's ruling on the late hit on Garcia. But he says he doesn't even know what a leg whip is and there was no maliciousness in either play.
