REPORT: Dallas Cowboys Face Fine For Having Three Players Suspended
The season hasn’t even started and the Dallas Cowboys are facing a fine from the NFL under the league’s remittance policy.
Cowboys defensive lineman Damontre Moore was just the latest player on the roster to be suspended. That gives the Cowboys three suspensions since the league year began.
Pro Football Talk explains:
“The NFL is finalizing its remittance policy, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer, but the league fined the Cowboys $500,000 last season for suspensions to Rolando McClain, Randy Gregory and Demarcus Lawrence. Based on the 2016 policy, the league would dock the Cowboys 25 percent of the base salaries the suspended players will lose, or roughly $91,000.
However, three other Cowboys — Ezekiel Elliott, Nolan Carroll and Damien Wilson — face suspensions, which could bring the team’s fine to the maximum $500,000.”
This is not a good look for a team that is coming off a 13-3 season and a first-round bye.
