Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning got a rare personal foul penalty in last week’s preseason game, and now he has received a rare fine from the NFL. Manning says he’s OK with that.
Manning told Chris Mortensen of ESPN that the NFL docked him $8,268 for unsportsmanlike conduct and he will not appeal.
“I accept it. Money well spent,” Manning said.
Manning got in the face of Texans safety D.J. Swearinger after Swearinger drilled Wes Welker with a shoulder to the head, causing Welker to leave the game with a concussion. Swearinger is expected to be fined by the NFL as well.
