Last Sunday's New York Giants-St. Louis Rams game proved to be a costly one for the wallets of many of the players involved. A total of nine players were fined by the league, five for the fracas that occurred prior to halftime and four due to other infractions.
Here is the breakdown.
-- Wide receiver Preston Parker and defensive end Damontre Moore, each of whom was ejected, were fined $15K.
-- Odell Beckham was fined $10K for kicking Rams linebacker Alex Ogletree.
-- Rams defensive end Williams Hayes, who was the third player ejected, was fined $10K.
-- Ogletree, whose late hit on Beckham started the melee, was fined $8,268.
-- Cullen Jenkins of the Giants was fined $16,537 for a late hit on St. Louis quarterback Shaun Hill. Eugene Simms of the Rams was fined the same amount for a late hit on Eli Manning.
-- Josh Brown and Zak DeOssie of the Giants were each fined $8,268 for late hits.
The most ridiculous part of all of this? The fines levied against Jenkins and Simms exceeded the amounts levied against anyone involved in the embarrassing fight. No matter how the NFL tries to explain that one, it's not right.
