Flashing Peace Sign While Scoring Touchdown Earns Odell Beckham Jr. A $10K Fine
The Baltimore Ravens wide receiver earned his fourth fine this season
According to the NFL, throwing up a peace sign is still a reason to get fined.
According to The New York Post, that’s what happened to Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. after he flashed the peace sign on his way to scoring a touchdown against the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 18. That move will cost the veteran player $10,927.

This isn’t the first time that the league has given a fine to a player throwing up a peace sign. Just last year, during the AFC divisional round game between the Miami Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills, Dolphins wideout Tyreek Hill was fined $10,000 when he did he same move when he ran and made a 64-yard touchdown.
Hill took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to tell Beckham that he was about to face the same.

The New York Post also reported that this fine is Beckham’s fourth one this season, including his third for unsportsmanlike conduct. He received two Oct. 15 when he played against the Tennessee Titans. Those totaled over $33,000. A week later against the Detroit Lions, Beckham was fined $21,844 for impermissible helmet use.
