Dallas Cowboys’ CeeDee Lamb says he’s confused by NFL’s ‘weird’ fines

FRISCO, Texas — Dallas Cowboys broad receiver CeeDee Lamb has been fined nearly $fifty,000 this season for uniform violations and a wave right after his walk-off profitable touchdown in opposition to the New England Patriots, when Inexperienced Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was fined only $14,650 for violating the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols.

“Annoy me? Nah. Confuse me a lot? Pretty much so certainly,” Lamb claimed. “I just will not understand why I am often the one particular finding fined for some purpose. Untucked jersey. I will not know.”

Lamb was fined $five,one hundred fifty for acquiring his jersey untucked during the Sept. 27 game in opposition to the Philadelphia Eagles and $15,450 for the very same violation in opposition to the Carolina Panthers the future week. The future penalty for an untucked jersey would be $46,350.

“Like, I will not know what I will need to do actually,” Lamb claimed. “I just know for positive I am more mindful of it. … Publish-tackle or something, I guess I received to appear down, pull my jersey down. Stuff like that. It truly is weird. It truly is very weird, thinking of the future time I get caught with my jersey untucked, I listened to I get fined like $fifty,000 or anything. That’s weird.”

Lamb claimed that he is not wearing his uniform any differently than he did a year back as a rookie and that he was not fined then. He has not been fined the earlier two games and claimed he will converse with the uniform inspector in advance of games.

“Long tale shorter, I am likely to make positive each and every game now that I am fine in advance of the game,” Lamb claimed.

Teammate Amari Cooper initial referenced Lamb’s fines on one hundred and five.three The Admirer in Dallas, saying his fellow receiver need to not like income.

“I would say that too, just thinking of all the income I’ve been giving up at that time, six games, six months in a row, just constantly finding fined,” Lamb claimed. “I would kind of feel the very same factor, but I do like income. For all those that will not know, I do like income.”

Lamb was also surprised Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith was not fined for choking him right after a capture in the Cowboys’ Oct. 31 win at Minnesota.

“Certainly, thinking of I received fined, what was that for, waving?” Lamb claimed, adding, “Then for me to get choked on the sideline and the ref claimed his thumb was caught in my helmet … that’s nonsense. … I know what it come to feel like to be choked. I was becoming choked.”
