Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson did some jawing with Seahawks safeties Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs during their Week 13 win. Now all three players will do a little paying up, too.
Adams and Diggs were fined $10,927 each by the league for unsportsmanlike conduct; Ferguson took a lesser hit for $5,812. None of them drew a penalty flag at the time.
The incident came in the third quarter of the Cowboys’ 41-35 win, following an 14-yard pass play that gave Dallas a new set of downs and put them on the Seattle 6. Ferguson popped up after the tackle and gave an emphatic first-down signal in Diggs’s face. Diggs shoved back, and Adams stalked after Ferguson to share a few words.
Ferguson returned, and the two came helmet-to-helmet, with Adams finally taking a quick swipe at the tight end’s facemask.
