Report: Cowboys RB Joseph Randle fined $29K for shoplifting
According to USA TODAY, the number represents how much Randle makes per week.
Randle apologized to his teammates Wednesday morning for the arrest, according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Randle took full responsibility for his actions and will face consequences, but will play on Sunday.
Randle allegedly shoplifted underwear and cologne from a Dallas-area mall. An arrest report said the total value of the stolen items was $123.50 before tax.
According to Hill, Garrett said the team would move on after Randle was fined significantly.
the Cowboys never considered suspending Randle. That would have cost them much more. They would have had release a player and sign a rb— Clarence Hill (@clarencehilljr) October 15, 2014
Randle is the team's third-string running back behind league-leading rusher DeMarco Murray and third-year pro Lance Dunbar. The 22-year-old has played in five games this season, rushing for 113 yards on 16 carries.
