Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been fined for his unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Monday’s game against the Vikings, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
The fine is worth $24,309 and is Beckham’s seventh of his career, which spans just over two seasons. He drew the penalty after a late hit from Minnesota cornerback Xavier Rhodes led to a sideline spat between the two.
Beckham has expressed his frustration this week off the field, and has struggled to find a rhythm on it this season. He has yet to score a touchdown in four games.
Beckham drew a flag for taunting as he went head to head in a heated matchup with Rhodes. In Week 3 against the Redskins, cameras captured him appearing to cry on the sidelines, as well as striking a kicking net out of frustration. Beckham has yet to score a touchdown this season in four games under new head coach Ben McAdoo, who was the team’s offensive coordinator last season.
Beckham said earlier this week in an interview with ESPN that he wasn’t having fun playing football anymore.
The Giants next face the Packers on Sunday night.
