Cowboys Face Tough Fines

The Dallas Cowboys will have at least three players suspended for part of the 2016 season and will be subject to a fine in the range of $250,000 based on last years remittance policy.

The league is still trying to come up with a fine schedule, which is based on the number of players suspended on a single team. Under last year’s policy if three or more players where suspended then a fine up to $250,000. This is the case for the Cowboys this year as linebacker Rolando McClain and defensive ends DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory are all suspended.

McClain and Lawrence are both suspended for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. McClain will miss the first 10 games of the 2016-2017 season, Lawrence will miss the first four. Gregory was first given a four game suspension but now faces harshest plenties for another violation.
