Game-breaking wide receiver Odell Beckham and five other New York Giants were fined a total of $72,400 for their actions in Sunday's melee-marred game in St. Louis.
While the NFL won't announce the fines for last weekend's games until Friday, placekicker Josh Brown and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins discussed the levies on Wednesday after being informed they were being docked.
Jenkins said he got the biggest fine, $16,000, for driving Rams quarterback Shaun Hill into the ground after the quarterback threw an incomplete pass in the fourth quarter.
Wide receiver Preston Parker and defensive end Damontre Moore were fined $15,000 apiece. Beckham was fined $10,000; Brown was docked $8,200; and long snapper Zak DeOssie was fined $8.200, the two players said.
