NFL fines roundup: Brandon Marshall fined again for footwear

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Marshall has expensive taste in cleats.

For the second time this season, Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall has been fined for his choice in footwear.

Earlier this season, Marshall was fined for wearing green cleats in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Week. In Week 14, Marshall wore orange cleats. His choice earned him a $15,000 fine from the league, according to ESPN. That brings Marshall's fine total to $25,500 for the season. Dallas Cowboys defensive back Orlando Scandrick received an even bigger fine for hitting Marshall in the head, though. According to USA Today, Scandrick was fined $21,000.

Marshall and Scandrick weren't the only NFL players fined this week. Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd received a $15,750 fine for his below-the-knees hit on Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon. Steelers center Cody Wallace was fined $15,000 for an unnecessary roughness, stemming from a hit to the groin of Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Randy Starks. Both fines were reported by ESPN.

Along with Byrd, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Courtney Upshaw and Dallas Cowboys defensive end George Selvie also received $15,750 fines for roughing the passer penalties, according to USA Today.

Houston Texans safety D.J. Swearinger and New Orleans Saints punter Thomas Morstead were fined $7,875 for facemask penalties. Colts safety LaRon Landry also got a $7,875 fine for removing Giovani Bernard's helmet in a game against the Bengals. To round out the fines for Week 14, Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett was fined $7,875 for stepping on Chris Williams' hand against the Rams last week. These fines are all according to USA Today.
