One of the newest hot topics in the NFL is teams faking injuries to slow down the other team.
The NFL fined the Saints $550,000 for allegedly giving directions to DE Cameron Jordan to fake an injury during the game against the Bucs.
The NFL reportedly fined the New Orleans Saints $550,000 after defensive end Cameron Jordan went down with an allegedly fake injury in a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
Jordan’s injury forced a stoppage during the fourth quarter as the Buccaneers sped to set up on the line of scrimmage at fourth-and-10.
Cameras allegedly captured Jordan “receiving direction” from the sideline to go down with an injury and force the stoppage, according to Florio.
The Saints have denied this.
Cam Jordan called the fine “ridiculous.”
Are fines made by nfl open to public? I just feel like this should be public knowledge. ‘Cause some of the fines are silly but this 1… ridiculous. Anyways & for what a “deliberate action to delay game” before a tm punts? NFL just wanted a new patek aquanaut or summ… not off me
