The NFL has fined Richard Sherman $7,875 for making a choking gesture toward San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick near the end of the NFC Championship game, according to the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows.

Sherman made the gesture after making a game saving deflection that resulted in an interception on a Kaepernick pass intended for Michael Crabtree in the endzone. After the play, Sherman and Crabtree became involved in a small scuffle followed by Sherman grabbing his throat with both hands and looking toward Kaepernick.
