Awesome player or not Clay Matthews is now $15000 poorer.

The Green Bay Packers linebacker has been fined $15000 by the NFL for his late hit on San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick in Sunday’s loss to the 49ers.

NFC spokesman Randall Liu confirmed Matthews’ fine to USA TODAY Sports.

Matthews was penalized for a personal foul on the play and later Niners coach Jim Harbaugh called both the hit and Matthews dirty.
