Carolina Panthers' cornerback Josh Norman has reportedly been fined more than $26K for his role in the altercation that ended up with New York Giants' wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. being suspended for one game, according to a published report.

Bet Josh Norman will appeal fines of $26,044 for 2 violations. Earlier this week he told @stephenasmith he'd appeal any possible discipline.— Jarrett Bell (@JarrettBell) December 23, 2015
Beckham and Norman went toe-to-toe from the opening whistle on Sunday. Beckham was flagged three times for unnecessary roughness, Norman once. There were also pre-game incidents.
Beckham has appealed his suspension, and that appeal is to be heard on Wednesday by James Thrash, a former NFL wide receiver.
Is this enough punishment for Norman? Too little? Too much? Offer your thoughts, but let's please keep it civil.
