    I found this interesting, and didn't know this. Apparently the league has a policy in place to fine teams that have an excessive number of suspended players. The Cowboys are getting nicked $250K for their 3 guys with drug, PED or personal conduct suspensions. The intent is to give teams some skin in the game to enforce/support the conduct policies.

    Bell and Martavius make two so far, and training camp hasn't even started yet. Another incident or two and I guess the Steelers will get a fine too.

    Reportedly, Jerry Jones has a net worth of $5 billion. He'll be OK.

    Considering dallas doesnt have to pay a salary to these 3 jerks thats a couple million they dont have to pay out in salary, subtract the 250K and they are keeping 1.750 million, doesnt seem like a team punishment to me....

    If Pittsburgh does get hit, it accounts to 15% of the total no. of suspended players salaries. In short,


    > $150K = nothing.
