Gold cleats cost Panthers’ Greg Hardy a $5,250 fine from NFL

Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy was fined $5,250 for violating the league’s uniform policy when he wore gold cleats Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Hardy tweeted last week he was planning something special for the fans: It turned out to be his choice of the “Incredible Hulk” Under Armour cleats given to him by Newton.

Also from the Saints-Panthers game, New Orleans safety Kenny Vaccaro was fined $17,750 for his horse-collar tackle on running back DeAngelo Williams.

Vaccaro, who also was penalized for taunting after the tackle, later left the game with a fractured ankle and is out for the season.
