107.5 The Eagle offers $50,000 to NFL players


Dean and Rog, morning drivers at Cox Radio Houston’s 107.5 The Eagle, are offering Houston Texans Andre Johnson, and Tennessee Titans’ Courtland Finnegan, a chance to finish their fight for charity. 

The Eagle, along with Dean and Rog, will contribute $50 grand (the total amount of their fines from the NFL) to a charity of their choice, if Johnson and Finnegan agree to a rematch of their fight during last weeks game.

Johnson and Finnegan were involved in a brutal fistfight that got both players ejected in the fourth quarter. Both drew fines of $25 thousand dollars each from the National Football League. The two had been pushing and jawing earlier in the game. Last season, Johnson was fined $7,500 for taking Finnegan to the ground by the facemask during a scuffle after a play in a 34-31 Texans win.

Rog Beaty, 107.5 The Eagle sports director and half of the Dean and Rog Morning Show, says a rematch would be an “Epic Super Fight, the likes of the Super Bowl, with knockdowns instead of touchdowns, and a stare down instead of a coin toss.” Dean Myers, Morning show co-host says “… to me, the fight would be like a ballet, except with no music, no choreography, and the dancers hit each other.”
