The joy of the spectacular victory costs the Saints very dearly.
The NFL fined the franchise $ 500,000. In addition, New Orleans will have to do without the seven-round pick in the 2021 draft. This is what Adam Schefter reports from “ESPN”.
Saints appear to be appealing
According to the report, the Saints reacted with incomprehension. Other teams would have celebrated their victories in the dressing room without a mask. The franchise feels that it has been treated unfairly and wants to appeal the high penalty.
After the big win against the Bucs, several players posted videos of the victory celebration from the dressing room. Players danced, hugged and celebrated the sixth win of the season. Head coach Sean Peyton can also be seen on the recordings.
It’s not the first high penalty of its kind in the NFL. The Las Vegas Raiders have also been fined $ 500,000 and lost a six-round pick for violating corona rules.
