The fines keep coming for Denver Broncos safety Kareem Jackson.
The NFL has fined Jackson $43,709 for unnecessary roughness against the Kansas City Chiefs last week, according to multiple reports. Jackson was not penalized for a hit on Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco in the fourth quarter, but the NFL deemed the hit fine-worthy after review.
Previously, Jackson was fined $14,819 for his hit on Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Jakobi Meyers in Week 1, $19,669 for his hit on Washington Commanders tight end Logan Thomas in Week 2 and $11,473 for unnecessary roughness against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3.
Jackson being a repeat offender explains why the latest fine is so high. Jackson has now been fined a total of $89,670 through the first six games of the season.
Jackson blasted the NFL’s fine system earlier this month, saying it is “completely out of hand.”
“You [can appeal] and they give you back half your money, but it’s still some B.S.,” Jackson on the Ross Tucker Podcast. “It’s like, you’re taking money from me for these things that — I’m not out here trying to maliciously hurt people.”
Jackson appealed his first three fines this season and they were all slightly reduced, and he plans to appeal again for the latest fine.
