Odell Beckham Jr. has been fined for his celebration in Sunday’s loss to the Eagles in which he crawled on his knees and lifted his leg up as if to pee on a fire hydrant.
According to ESPN the celebration cost Beckham $12,154. This marked the second time in 2017 that a Giants player has been fined for a celebration. Rookie tight end Evan Engram was fined for grabbing his crotch in the Giants’ loss to the Lions in Week 2.
The initial six-game suspension stemmed from a domestic violence allegation by Elliott’s former girlfriend in July of 2016. Though Elliott was never charged by police and the NFL’s lead investigator Kia Roberts reportedly was silenced for recommending no suspension, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell still imposed the ban after he decided there was “persuasive evidence supporting” Tiffany Thompson’s allegations of domestic abuse.
Arbitrator Harold Henderson upheld Goodell’s decision Sept. 5, but the NFLPA filed a request for a temporary restraining order and U.S. District Court Judge Amos Mazzant granted the injunction while calllng the league’s arbitration process “fundamentally unfair.”
The NFL then appealed Mazzant’s decision to the Fifth Circuit Court of Cheap Jerseys China Appeals in New Orleans. While the legal process plays out, Elliott is allowed to Cheap Jerseys Cycling play and will be on the field Sunday when the Cowboys play host to the Rams.
