Jaylen Warren frustrated after second massive fine for unnecessary roughness penalty

.”But I don’t let it alter my play. … I don’t know if I should say this, but if I was in the same situation, I’m still doing what I’m going to do. It’s what got me on the team.

“That’s hella money. That’s so much money. If I got fined $2,000, I’d be pissed, too. But $50,000 is crazy. That’s a whole car. That’s money I could be giving my family.” For the second time this season, Warren received an unnecessary roughness penalty for using his helmet to engage in a block. The first fine — for hitting Cleveland Browns safety Juan Thornhill — was for $48,000. It was eventually reduced to $39,000 after Warren appealed.

In Week 7, against the Los Angeles Rams, Warren was in pass protection when he went up against linebacker Michael Hoecht. On Tuesday, the second fine was announced — $48,556. Warren will make $870,000 this season after signing a three-year, $2.75-million contract as an undrafted free agent in 2022. headtopics.com

One of his chief complaints with the fines is that they’re not tiered or using a pay scale. He’s paying the same amount that higher-paid players are being fined. “I was talking to one of the coaches and they’re saying that same thing,” Warren said.”I get fined the same that dudes like T.J. would get fined. I get fined the same amount of money.”

Added Watts:”I think it’s extremely egregious the amount of money that a guy like that’s being fined. It’s ridiculous.” Ultimately, Warren wonders what he’s supposed to do differently, especially as an undersized back. Without a clear solution, Warren reluctantly accepts he’ll more than likely continue to incur fines in the future. headtopics.com
