Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for an incident on the field involving Minnesota Vikings cornerback A.J. Jefferson.

Cutler was scrambling on a play and stiff-armed Jefferson before running out of bounds. The play drew a fifteen-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

“I’ve got to be smarter than that,” Cutler said. “If anyone else on offense had done that I would have probably yelled at him like it can’t happen here. I can’t do it again obviously.”

Here is a GIF of the play that resulted in Cutler’s fine:

Cutler has a bit of a history for getting in the face of his opponents and letting them know how he really feels, so perhaps his reputation had to do with this fine.

    It wasn’t the stiff arm that got him penalized, it was him tossing the ball at the guy that got him in trouble.
