SEATTLE — Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin has been fined more than $11,000 for pretending to drop his pants and mimic some, um, bathroom behaviors during Super Bowl XLIX.
Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports tweeted about the fine Wednesday morning:
Baldwin was penalized 15 yards for the move, which was not shown on TV, following his touchdown in the third quarter of Sunday’s 28-24 loss to the Patriots. However, Baldwin told the Everett Herald Tuesday that he had no regrets.
“I was just out there having fun playing the game of football,” Baldwin told John Boyle of the Herald. “There’s no explanation. You play this game for so long, you go out there and you have fun> I can get criticized for it, that’s fine, everybody has their opinion, but in the moment I was just having fun. My teammates know that.”
NBCSports.com reports other Seahawks may be fined for their actions Sunday, including Bruce Irvin, who was ejected following a fight in the 4th Quarter.
