Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is not happy with his latest fine from the NFL.

In a post on his Instagram story Monday, Beckham posted a letter from the league telling him he'd been fined $14,037 for violating the NFL's policy on uniforms and equipment by wearing pants that didn't cover his knees during Cleveland's loss to Seattle on Oct. 13.

"14 k for some pants that are NOT gonna protect me from anything ... this shxt is ridiculous," Beckham commented on the post.

Beckham was fined earlier this month after a heated skirmish against Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey.

"I think it's crazy. ... The NFL finds ways to just take it. They're going to take it from you," he said at the time. "I understand a penalty, getting fined for that. But pants above the knees, a shirt hanging out—and we're talking about a T-shirt that cost $5 to make, and you're getting $5,000 taken from you. Pads above your knees, and I'm like, you really think that this little knee pad covering my kneecap is going to affect, if somebody hits me, weighs 250 pounds, running 18 mph. I don't do physics, but if I get hit, this is not going to protect me."

The Browns next play the Patriots on Sunday, Oct. 27.
