Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett was fined $12,154 for doing his sexy dance, according to the Seattle Times.

During the Seahawks’ victory against the Los Angeles Rams last Thursday night, Bennett recorded a sack and performed the dance. He was flagged with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

The veteran defensive end has done the dance at least since 2013. Earlier this season against the Miami Dolphins, Bennett was fined $9,115 for excessive celebration.

Bennett has been selected to the 2017 Pro Bowl in Orlando. So far this season, he has racked up 29 tackles and three sacks. Bennett is one of the best players on Seattle’s stingy defense and is considered one of the best defensive players in the league. He can rush the passer and contribute in the run game.

At 9-4-1, the Seahawks have clinched an NFC West title. Seattle has a Week 16 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals (5-8-1) at CenturyLink Field.
