3 Broncos players fined by NFL after Week 1

·1 min read

Three Denver Broncos players were fined by the NFL after the team’s 17-16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1.

Broncos outside linebacker Jonathon Cooper was fined $4,723 for taunting, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. Cooper was penalized in the second quarter after he stood over a Seahawks running back following a tackle.

On the other side of the ball, Denver running back Javonte Williams was fined $11,194 for an unnecessary roughness penalty.

Broncos safety Kareem Jackson wasn’t fined for any penalties, but the league did fine him for not having his knees covered in Week 1.

Jackson made it clear on Twitter that he’s not happy about the fine.

Jackson then joked that the NFL wants players to wear pants like this on game day:

The three players were fined more than $20,000 combined in total.

The league uses money from current player fines to help fund programs that assist former players no longer in the NFL.
