Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb Sounds Off On Being Fined By The NFL For Untucked Jersey

Cowboys CeeDee Lamb has been fined almost $50,000 this season by the NFL for various violations.

Lamb notably has been fined over $20,000 on two separate infractions of having his jersey untucked during games. The first came on Sept. 27 against the Eagles and the second came on Oct. 3 against the Cowboys. Lamb, like everyone else, has had it with the NFL’s rules.

“Like, I don’t know what I need to do, honestly,” Lamb said on Wednesday. “I just know for sure I’m more conscious of it. … Post-tackle or anything, I guess I got to look down, pull my jersey down. Stuff like that. It’s weird. It’s very weird, considering the next time I get caught with my jersey untucked, I heard I get fined like $50,000 or something. That’s weird.”

Lamb said he’s been wearing his jersey the same as he did during his rookie season, when he was never fined. Lamb will be fined $46,350 if he violates the rule a third time.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, meanwhile, was fined $14,650 for violating the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols. That’s left Lamb confused.

“Annoy me? Nah. Confuse me a lot? Very much so yes,” Lamb said. “I just don’t understand why I’m always the one getting fined for some reason. Untucked jersey. I don’t know.”

Lamb went on to say that Vikings safety Harrison Smith should have gotten fined for choking him on the sideline during their Week 8 matchup.

“Yes, considering I got fined, what was that for, waving?” Lamb said. “Then for me to get choked on the sideline and the ref said his thumb was stuck in my helmet … that’s nonsense. … I know what it feel like to be choked. I was being choked.”
