Chiefs' Hill fined $10K by NFL for peace sign gesture
NEW YORK (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill has been fined $10,026 by the NFL for taunting after he flashed a peace sign at the end of a touchdown catch.
Hill was running into the end zone during a 73-yard reception in the fourth quarter of the Chiefs' 54-51 loss to the Los Angeles Rams last Monday night when he turned back at a pursuing defender and raised two fingers at him — a gesture he has done previously without being fined. He was assessed a 15-yard penalty for taunting.
Hill was penalized but not fined last week when he jumped into the stands after a touchdown and started operating a television camera.
Chiefs safety Eric Murray was docked $26,739 on Saturday for unnecessary roughness during the opening drive of the game.
Denver safety Justin Simmons was fined $53,482 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on a defenseless receiver in the Broncos' 23-22 win over the Chargers last Sunday.
