Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker was fined $10,000 by the NFL this week after wearing an unauthorized promotional hat during his post-game interview following Sunday's win over the Dolphins, a league spokesman confirms.

Welker commented on the fine in a tweet this evening, writing "Thanks for warning me the other 16 weeks I wore the hat."

For his Friday chat with reporters in the locker room, Welker opted for a simple Patriots winter hat, instead of the baseball cap for the energy bar company he promotes.
