DK Metcalf Fined For TV Camera Celebration, Marcus Peters Gets Fined For Spitting At Jarvis Landry
The NFL handed out some hefty fines on Saturday.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf drew a flag in Week 14 when he took over the CBS camera operation for his touchdown celebration. Wilson hit Metcalf for five yards and the Seahawks touchdown, which led to Metcalf jumping in the stands to take over the filming of a CBS camera.
On Saturday, he was fined $6,131 for those actions.
Jarvis Landry called Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters “cowardly” after a video clip showed Peters apparently spitting at the Cleveland Browns wide receiver as he walked away during their Monday Night Football game.
“He’s a coward,” Landry said Thursday. “I think he knew that maybe behind my back he’d do things like that, but to my face, he wouldn’t. … Now I know. Everybody knows the type of player he is, the type of person he is.”
Also on Saturday, Peters was fined $12,500 for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Peters issued a statement Thursday denying that he intentionally spit at Landry.
“I didn’t spit at Jarvis. Where I come from, when you have an issue with someone, you deal with it face-to-face, man-to-man,” Peters said. “Anyone who believes that I intentionally spit at him does not know me — plain and simple.”
