In 2010, he was docked $5,000 for using Twitter less than 90 minutes before kick-off in the team’s Week 1 win over the St. Louis Rams. Six weeks later, Dockett was again forced to open his check book for $7,500 dollars after pressing his elbow in the neck area of then-Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselback.

According to’s Albert Breer, Dockett’s latest fine will be far more substantial — costing the defensive end $200,000 or 5.8 percent of his base salary in 2012.

If the team hands down any sort of in-game suspension, it would be the first of its kind in the three-time Pro Bowler’s career.
