The NFL announced Friday that it fined Jets safety Eric Smith $7,500 for his hit on Patriots' receiver Wes Welker. According to multiple reports on Twitter, the NFL fined Smith for unnecessarily striking a defenseless receiver.

Oddly though, Welker said earlier this week that he didn't have any ill will towards Smith and didn't think that he should be fined or suspended.

"Eric came up to me during and after the game and apologized. He was just trying to make a physical football play. That’s what it came down to," Welker about Smith earlier this week. "I don’t have any ill feelings about that play or anything else. There’s nothing I’m too worried about with him."

That's nice and all, but the hit was loud, it sent Welker to the ground clutching his helmet and had three trainers sprinting out onto the field as soon as it happens.

So, yeah, the NFL is far more worried about making sure that defenders aren't taking unnecessary shots at players than anything else, is really the lesson here.
