Cardinals QB Carson Palmer fined $11,576 by NFL for celebratory pelvic thrust


NEW YORK — Arizona Cardinals quarterback has been fined $11,576 by the NFL for a celebratory gesture toward the crowd last Sunday.

Palmer pumped his fist and then added a pelvic thrust — drawing the fine for unsportsmanlike conduct — at the end of the Cardinals' 39-32 win over the Seahawks in Seattle. He told ESPN he spotted his friends in the crowd and made the gesture at them, not at Seahawks fans.

Seahawks linebacker was docked $23,152 for his personal foul on Cardinals wide receiver in that same game. He left his feet to hit Fitzgerald, drawing a penalty.

Denver safety was fined $10,000 for punching Kansas City receiver , a move for which Ward was ejected.

Pittsburgh linebacker was docked $8,681 for grabbing Cleveland quarterback 's facemask and twisting him down.
