The second offense, against the Cardinals in Week 6, would have been worth $11,576. The Night net reduced the second fine to an undisclosed amount.According to the Night net, having the words written on eye black is a violation of the organization's uniform policy.Heyward has started a charitable partnership with EyeBlack.com, where people can buy "Iron Head" eye black marks.
