NFL Week 2: players handed fines
Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams, Washington Football Team defensive end Chase Young and Pittsburgh Steelers guard Trai Turner were each fined $15,450, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Adams and Young were fined for being overly physical against quarterbacks Ryan Tannehill of the Titans and Daniel Jones of the Giants, respectively. Turner, however, was fined for unsportsmanlike conduct after spitting at a Las Vegas Raiders player.
Jamal Adams' teammate Gabe Jackson was fined $12,875 for unsportsmanlike conduct after a Chris Carson’s touchdown.
The only $12,000 fine was for LA Rams’ linebacker Kenny Young. This was because the player made contact with one of the officials in the game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Financial penalties in the $10,300 range went to tight end Jared Cook and wide receiver Keenan Allen, both of the Los Angeles Chargers, and also to safeties Tashaun Gipson of the Chicago Bears and Vonn Bell of the Cincinnati Bengals for taunting opponents, as reported by NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
