Not that it comes as any surprise, but Dez Bryant has been fined $7,875 by the NFL for making the “throat-slash” gesture after scoring a first quarter touchdown against the Rams--a no-no by league standards--last week, according to a source in contact with ESPN.com.
Bryant ran straight over to head coach Jason Garrett after being flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct on the play to apologize, and he expressed regret over the move to the media on Monday.
“I shouldn't have done it anyway. I never put anything with the X,” Bryant said, referring to his signature, arms-crossed touchdown celebration. “Do the X and go on.”
Dallas has a pair of other candidates for potential fines stemming from the win over St. Louis: defensive tackle Jason Hatcher was called for roughing the passer, and cornerback Orlando Scandrick was called for coming in high on the Rams’ Sam Bradford.
