Three fines, and you’re almost out in the NFL.
After Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan was fined for a third straight week, the NFL warned him that future infractions could result in “increased disciplinary action,” according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.
Such a warning is fairly standard. Cowboys tackle Flozell Adams was fined three straight times last year, and warned he could face additional action. When he was involved in an incident two months later, Adams was fined $50,000, but not suspended.
Finnegan’s fine totals are starting to climb as well. He was fined $10,000 this week instead of the usual $5,000.
