NFL uniform cops fine Suggs for pre-game gladiator helmet

Terrell Suggs thought it would be fun to fire up the fans in Baltimore by wearing a gladiator helmet in pre-game warmups. The No Fun League thought there was nothing fun about it.

The NFL has confirmed that it fined Suggs $5,512 for a uniform violation.

I thought we needed a boost. We couldn’t afford to start slow,” Suggs said of his choice in headwear.

The league is strict about what players can wear, even before the game starts, and so Suggs is lighter in the wallet as a result. But this fine seems silly. It’s not like Suggs wore a gladiator helmet during the game.

If he did that, he’d get fined a lot more than $5,512.
