The National Football League yesterday announced that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was being fined $8200 for taunting Houston Texans’ safety DJ Swearinger during a pre-season game.
Swearinger had been flagged for tackling Wes Welker, who ended up getting a concussion on the play.
Manning got in Swearinger’s face mask and dropped an F-bomb.
Boom. $8200. Manning says he won’t appeal the ruling.
He even called it “money well spent” according to one source.
Those aren’t pads on Manning’s shoulders. Those are major-league chips!
