NFL fines Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr. for ‘dog’ celebration

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was fined $12,154 for his touchdown celebration in which he mimicked a dog urinating on a fire hydrant last week against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Beckham was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct on the play, and earlier this week told reporters that he did not regret the action, only the fact that the team was penalized because of it. Beckham had a private meeting with Giants owner John Mara this week.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was fined $12,154 for unsportsmanlike conduct after he removed his helmet on the field to yell at a referee. Sherman was not fined for his hit on Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota that drew an unnecessary roughness penalty.

Three players, New York Jets safety Jamal Adams, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeGarrette Blount and Minnesota Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes, were each fined $9,115 for taunting.

San Francisco 49ers safety Jimmie Ward was fined $24,309 for unnecessary roughness for a hit in the Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Other players fined for unnecessary roughness include Titans offensive lineman Jack Conklin ($12,154), Baltimore running back Alex Collins ($9,115), Browns linebacker James Burgess ($9,115) and Lions guard T.J. Lang ($9,115).
