Raiders’ Maxx Crosby hit with fine by NFL

The NFL’s emphasis on taking taunting out of the game has cost Raiders defensive end Maxx Crosby $5,809,

The league docked Crosby that amount for conduct it considered unsportsmanlike last week against the Cincinnati Bengals. During a sequence in the game, Crosby attempted to hand the football to Bengals offensive tackle Jonah Williams after a play in which the two players were entangled.

Crosby was not penalized for the incident during the game.
