Cowboys fine Bennett for video

Martellus Bennett, who recorded a rap video placed on You Tube and subsequently removed, was fined by the Cowboys for the equivalent of 1 game check ($22,647).

In the video, he used a lot of profanity and referenced Tony Romo, Jason Witten and Jerry Jones.

The Cowboys back-up tight end sort-of, kind-of issued an apology.
"Why they hatin' on me, it was just a song. I was only rappin', I didn't do nothin' wrong."
Interesting fact: Instead of recording the initial video, Bennett could have been late to 226 team meetings and have been fined less (226 x $100 = $22,600).
