Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman may have a trip to New York booked for Super Bowl XLVIII, but he’ll be a little lighter in the pocket when he does so.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the NFL fined Sherman on Friday for unsportsmanlike conduct at the end of last Sunday’s NFC Championship against the San Francisco 49ers.
The ‘taunting’ was likely the least talked about activity regarding Sherman this week, but the NFL didn’t overlook it and hammered down the relatively small fine.
The NFL did not specify as to what action resulted in the fine (if there was a specific one) though I’d be hard pressed to think the league fined Sherman for the slap on Crabtree’s posterior at the end of the game. Rather, it likely stemmed from the ‘choke’ sign Sherman ran around the field displaying.
Regardless, I’m sure it’s a fine he’d pay over and over again if needed.
