Bennett Fined $5,000 For Orange Cleats

(WSCR) Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett has been fined $5,000 by the NFL for wearing orange cleats in the Bears win over the Eagles on Monday.

Wearing the cleats violated the NFL’s uniform policy.

“They were too orange, I guess,” Bennett said Wednesday.

Bennett will not wear the orange cleats for this Sunday’s game against the Lions, even though the Bears will wear their alternate orange jerseys.

    The NFL is getting ridiculous with the minor infractions they are imposing. Even with that rule, there should be an exception if the cleats are one of the team’s colors.
