Add quarterback Jay Cutler to the list of Bears who were fined for plays or actions in Sunday's win against the Minnesota Vikings.
Cutler was fined $10,000 for taunting, according to a league source. Cutler was penalized for taunting Vikings cornerback A.J. Jefferson late in the first quarter.
Cutler scrambled for a 13-yard gain and was pushed out of bounds by Jefferson on the play. Cutler stiff-armed Jefferson on his way out of bounds then flipped the ball back at Jefferson as he made his way back to the Bears' huddle to receive the penalty.
"I was just trying to toss him the ball gingerly and say 'Good job', and they caught me, so...," Cutler said after the game. Source: Chicago Sun Times Attached Thumbnails
