Chad Ochocinco Tells Roger Goodell He Will Reimburse Mason Foster's Fine

After Tampa Bay's Mason Foster delivered a huge hit on Chad Ochocinco in last Thursday's preseason game, the Patriots receiver tweeted that he would reimburse Foster if he gets fined. The NFL, however, said that Ochocinco can't reimburse Foster and fined the Buccaneers linebacker $20,000.

Ochocinco doesn't appear to care.

The former Cincinnati Bengal took to Twitter on Wednesday night and told Roger Goodell, referring to him as "Dad," that he still plans on reimbursing Foster.

"Please feel free to contact me," Ochocinco wrote.

Foster hasn't been the only player to get fined during the preseason.

Detroit's Ndamukong Suh was also fined $20,000 for a hard hit on Cincinnati's Andy Dalton. Of course, Suh expressed his disappointment on Twitter and wrote, "$20,000REALLY??? #NFL #BIGFAIL."

Suh also said he would appeal the fine and that he won't change his style of play.
