The discipline for Broncos linebacker Randy Gregory and Rams guard Oday Aboushi, who traded blows after Sunday’s game, has been reduced now.
It all began when Los Angeles Rams quarterback Baker Mayfield tried to play off a postgame fight after their blowout against the Denver Broncos. The league issued one-game suspensions to Rams offensive lineman Oday Aboushi and Denver Broncos defensive end Randy Gregory after the two got into a fight.
However, new punishments were announced for both players as a result of an official appeal. Gregory’s suspension has been reduced to a $50,000 fine.
“Appeals officers Derrick Brooks and James Thrash, jointly appointed by the NFL and NFLPA, have reduced the discipline assessed to Randy Gregory and Oday Aboushi, respectively, from one-game suspensions to fines of $50,000 for Gregory and $12,000 for Aboushi,” NFL Senior Vice President of Football and International Communications Michael Signora reported on Twitter.
Neither team is fighting for a playoff spot so a suspension wouldn’t have hurt either squad.
Gregory signed with the Broncos prior to the 2022 season after he shockingly left the Dallas Cowboys. He had spent the first five seasons of his NFL career in Dallas before making his way over to Denver.
“My goal is to finish out this season strong, play with pride, and be part of the solution and not the problem going forward,” Gregory said in an issued apology.
It was a fitting end to the Nathaniel Hackett era in Denver. Hackett was fired by the team Monday. He lasted 15 games as the team’s head coach, going 4-11.
In six games played, Gregory has 2.0 sacks, two forced fumbles, and 12 tackles.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
