Sources: Cowboys' Lamb racking up NFL finesTheSportsWig Admin
Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb has been fined by the NFL five different times from over Dallas’ first six games this season for a total of $46,865, league sources told ESPN, including $10,300 for his wave on the walk-off winning touchdown earlier this month against the Patriots.
Lamb twice has been fined for having his jersey untucked — $5,150 the first time against the Eagles on Sept. 27, then $15,450 for the same violation against the Panthers on Oct. 3. The next time Lamb is penalized for having his jersey untucked, it will cost him a $46,350 fine.
Lamb also was fined $5,150 for his socks failing to cover his lower leg during Dallas’ regular-season opener against the Buccaneers, and $10,815 for an illegal crack back block against the Panthers.
Lamb’s base salary this season is $1.247 million, meaning he already has been fined 3.75% of his total salary just six games into the season, — and teammates have noticed.
“I’ve never seen a player so young get fined so much,” Cowboys receiver Amari Cooper told 105.3 The Fan in Dallas this weekend: “He’s gotten fined like every week. It’s very confusing to me. I’m like, ‘Do you like money? Do you like getting paid?'”
Lamb, 22, has 33 receptions for 497 yards — both team highs — and four touchdowns in six games this season. His 82.8 receiving yards per game is the 10th-highest average in the NFL this season.
