A day after Titans defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil fired off a middle finger to officials working the Denver-Tennessee game, Cecil has apologized for the gesture.
“I want to apologize to the NFL, organization, fans and my family for my
gesture yesterday,” Cecil said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “It was inappropriate and there is no excuse for that
type of behavior under any circumstance.”
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reported earlier tonight that NFL V.P. of operations Ray Anderson has warned Cecil that another incident will lead to a suspension. Mort pointed out that, when Cecil was fined $20,000 in December 2009 for conduct toward game officials, former V.P. of officiating wanted to suspend Cecil then and there.
