Leonard Fournette after NFL fines him for role in Jaguars-Seahawks fight: ‘Worth it’

After Sunday’s crazy ending to the Jaguars and Seahawks matchup that featured a fight on the field as well as one player trying to enter the seats to go after fans, the NFL has announced discipline for the incidents.

Former LSU star Leonard Fournette received one of the heavier penalties despite others clearly displaying worse behavior.

No players involved were suspended, but the NFL did issue a number of fines. Here’s a breakdown of all of them:

Michael Bennett, the Seahawks defensive lineman who instigated the entire fight with an attempt at a dirty, low hit on a kneel-down play, somehow avoided any discipline.

Further, Fournette received a bigger fine, by about $3,000, than the Seahawks Quinton Jefferson. Fans in Seattle were throwing objects at Jefferson from the stands, and he attempted to leap and climb over the wall boundary to enter the stands and fight them. Yes he was provoked very inappropriately, but trying to go into the stands seems like it should warrant a little stiffer penalty.

Fournette appears to think that he got a bad outcome as well, but tweeted that “it’s worth it” to defend his teammates.

Boss move, Leonard, boss move.
