Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry fined by NFL for abusive language

Friday October 9th, 2015

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry has been fined $23,152 by the NFL for unsportsmanlike conduct.

The league announced the news Friday.

During the fourth quarter of the Miami’s game against the New York Jets on Sunday, Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw a fourth-down pass intended for Landry. Vying for the pass, Landry made contact with Darrelle Revis, who then intercepted the ball. The officials ruled it was incidental contact.

After the play, Landry directed abusive language at a nearby official and was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.

In his second year out of LSU, Landry leads the Dolphins with 28 receptions to go with 270 receiving yards.
