studio beats by dr. dre headphones Colin Kaepernick fined for wearing headphones
Yet it’s more than the $8,286 fine the Broncos’ Julius Thomas faces for a chop block on Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell.
Kaepernick later took to Twitter to explain his decision and posted a photo of him with the headphones: “I support breast cancer awareness! My grandma is a survivor!”
Kaepernick announced he had been fined more than $11,000 and had appealed the penalty for what an official called “inappropriate language” by the quarterback following a fourth quarter interception in a 28 20 loss to the Bears in the Sept. 14 home opener.
Kaepernick reiterated that he did nothing wrong when he and Chicago defensive end Lamarr Houston went at it and Kaepernick pointed to Houston’s comments that the quarterback didn’t say anything offensive or out of line. Kaepernick shoved Houston.
In early June, Kaepernick one of the NFL’s most dynamic young playcallers received a $126 million, six year contract extension that keeps him with the organization through the 2020 season. The deal includes $61 million in guaranteed money.
