Waterloo Region Record - - SPORTS -

New York Gi­ants wide re­ceiver Odell Beck­ham Jr. has been fined $12,154 by the Na­tional Foot­ball League for his dog­like touch­down cel­e­bra­tion last Sunday. Beck­ham got down on all fours and pre­tended to uri­nate like a dog af­ter catch­ing a fourth-quar­ter touch­down pass in a loss to the Philadel­phia Ea­gles. He was pe­nal­ized for un­sports­man­like con­duct for the cel­e­bra­tion, and met a few days later with co-owner John Mara, who was un­happy with Beck­ham’s be­hav­iour. Also in that game, Ea­gles run­ning back LeGar­rette Blount was fined $9,115 for taunt­ing. Jets rookie safety Ja­mal Adams and Min­nesota cor­ner­back Xavier Rhodes were docked the same amount for taunt­ing. Jets line­backer Dar­ron Lee drew an $18,231 fine for a late hit on Mi­ami quar­ter­back Jay Cut­ler. Seat­tle cor­ner­back Richard Sher­man was fined $12,154 for un­nec­es­sary rough­ness, while Den­ver’s Will Parks was docked $9,115, also for un­nec­es­sary rough­ness.
