Nick Collins doesn't believe he deserved a $50,000 fine for a helmet to helmet hit against Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams on Sunday night, but he understands why the NFL hit him in the pocketbook. "It's a sensitive issue right now in the NFL with them trying to protect players," Collins told ESPN Radio. "Unfortunately we were on the big stage (Sunday) and I was that guy. I wasn't trying to do it, but it happened. It was a bang-bang play so I will live with it and move forward." Five players, including Collins, have been socked with at least a $50,000 fine since the NFL started cracking down on illegal hits on Oct. 19. "At the end of the day I know I didn't do anything wrong," Collins said. "I wasn't trying to hit the guy in the head."
