According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch has been fined $24,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct involving a referee.
The incident took place during the Raiders' Week 15 20-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. After Raiders QB Derek Carr fumbled the ball out of the end zone a last ditch fourth quarter effort, Lynch wasn't happy about the call being ruled a turnover.
Lynch was previously suspended a single game for grabbing a referee during Oakland's 31-30 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He sat out Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills but also missed out on about $111K between his game check and active roster bonus.
