Dolphins star Tyreek Hill unapologetic after NFL fines him for touchdown backflip celebration

Tyreek Hill, the Dolphins’ wide receiver, has been quite the buzz of the town owing to his frequent run-ins with the law. Hill has received many fines this season, which includes Week 5’s eventful game when he finds himself in the crosshairs of the league’s disciplinary committee. A seemingly innocent gesture, a peace sign, ended up costing him $10,927. He was then penalized for not having socks on throughout the game, an oversight he said was due to a lack of time.

The wide receiver once again got fined in Week 6 for doing a celebration after making a touchdown. The reason was that the NFL has strict rules for celebrations, and the WR broke one. The 29-year-old will carry on doing what he wants to do despite this fine.
