League fines Jarvis Landry, Denzel Ward

AP

Browns players Denzel Ward and Jarvis Landry were fined for their actions against the Giants in the preseason opener. The NFL docked Ward $10,026 for taunting and Landry $13,369 for unsportsmanlike conduct, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

Officials penalized Ward 15 yards for taunting and Landry 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct, but the league apparently used different terminology on each in assessing the fines.

Ward stood over Giants receiver Hunter Sharp after a hard hit on the fourth play from scrimmage.

Landry caught a 32-yard pass over Janoris Jenkins on the Browns’ first play from scrimmage but got in Jenkins’ face at the end of the play.

  1. Fined for “taunting”?

    Are these bozos trying to kill the league? Maybe the owners can beg Tagliabue to come back and fix the mess Goodell has created

  2. Very first game, one that does not even count, and Landry gets another fine/flag for UC. I hope he does well in Cleveland but it does not appear that he even thinks there is an issue. He more than likely blames the league for treating him unfairly. He has plenty of talent with some limits in speed but his mental makeup will hinder him as it did in Miami.

  3. Thank you, Cleveland, for taking this guy off our hands. An all time head case, he wants to compete with Odell Beckham, Jr, but he knows he can’t.

    That would be a hard “yes.”

    Oops. That might have earned me a fine too.

  5. To the Dolphins fans that are happy that the Browns took Landry off your hands….

    So are we. I’d rather have this than someone who doesn’t hit hard, play hard, and piss someone off every once in a while. Draw a flag for having swagger? I think I am ok with that. Beats the alternative.

  6. Insanity. This isnt the football I grew up with in the 80’s. This country needs to man back up. These fines are unjustified.

    Landry’s good but he thinks he’s better. Wait till he does his big celebratory first down point when you’re down four scores and he’s piling up garbage time catches. It does grate on you.

    Yes, Browns fans would be ok with that.

  9. These clowns make one play each early on in the first PRESEASON game, and they’re jaw-jacking. A rookie and a new FA acquisition…smdh. Talking smack like it’s a playoff game or some crap…what a joke. Browns gonna be clowns. It’s in the water up there in Lake Erie. Hotseat Hue didn’t “cleanse” anything with his PR stunt…he just deepened the infection of loserdom.

    Yeah, they’ll win a few games this year. Nowhere to go but up from 0-16 & 1-31. 4-7 wins, max…and majority will come after Haley takes over sometime in October after Jackson gets the axe, mercifully.

    Many of us thought the same. Then his outbursts were becoming much more costly. First it was a spark that was needed, then it became a momentum crushing drive killer, then it likely cost a game. A loss when there should be a win is not good for a fringe team. It can mean playoffs or couch. Not saying Landry cost the playoffs but he did cost at least one game (potentially). He needs to reign in some of the stupidity while maintaining the passion. I’m not sure he is capable of that though.

  11. It is comical how the circle of life with players works. Current Fanbase loves their guy. Fanbase loves guy. Fanbase warns new fanbase about guy. New Fanbase says no way that won’t happen here. Old Fanbase says “I told you so”. New fanbase says “sour grapes”. A few months in (or very first game) guy shows his true selfish, not team first behavoir. Browns Fans, you have been warned. We loved Landry and Suh, but at some point you just turn on them from absolute stupidity. I am really shocked to see fans of Taunting. I have Coached for 17 years and this is totally not acceptable at any level. This country is getting nastier by the minute. Organized Team Sports is not just a game… it is meant to build personal character and team achievment skills. Don’t give me the “swagger” BS.
