49ers RB Carlos Hyde Fined $9K For Flexing His Biceps
No fun league, indeed.
During last Thursday night, San Francisco 49ers running back Carlos Hyde had a 7-yard gain for a first down in the second quarter. After the play, Hyde flexed his biceps at Arizona Cardinals defenders. He was flagged immediately for taunting.
“The penalty hurt us,” 49ers coach Chip Kelly said before the half. “We talked about it before. We know that’s an emphasis in the league. You just can’t do that.”
On Friday, the NFL decided to hurt Hyde’s pockets and fine him $9K for the taunting penalty.
