Another week, another $6,949 fine for Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf.

The league docked Metcalf after he was ejected with 1:19 remaining in Sunday’s loss to the Packers.

After an incomplete pass intended for him, Metcalf grabbed the facemask of Henry Black and then that of Eric Stokes. Metcalf was ejected. Packers safety Darnell Savage was cited for taunting, and Seahawks offensive lineman Jamarco Jones was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.

The league did not fine Savage or Jones. Seahawks defensive end Carlos Dunlap was fined $10,300 for throwing a shoe during the game.

Metcalf wasn’t penalized in Week 7 when he and Marshon Lattimore mixed it up several times, but the league fined Metcalf $6,949. In Week 8, officials penalized Metcalf for taunting after he jumped onto the goalpost in celebration, earning him another $6,949 fine.

Metcalf admitted this week he needs to grow up, but at the same time, he added that he wasn’t going to back down from anything.

8 responses to “DK Metcalf fined $6,949 for his ejection Sunday

  1. Fining D.K. Metcalf $6,949 is like fining me one beer. He ain’t even gonna notice that.

  2. He was the one that grabbed two different face masks, he needs to grow up, and Dunlap throwing a offensive line man’s shoe 30 yards, the coach has lost the team, all he does is whine about the officials.

  3. He admitted he needs to grow up but then said essentially he’s not going to change. In other words, his temper is going to continue to hurt his team.

  4. That’s less than CeeDee was fined for his socks being too low. The NFL has become a joke with it’s fines and enforcements. Player safety means less than a players socks conforming?

  5. That’s almost $21000 in three weeks. Over the course of a season that would be nearly $119,000 for simple and stupid infractions. Sooner or later he will notice the missing money. At least he knows he has to grow up. We’ll see if he can actually do it!
