Jets Fined for Not Reporting Favre Injury

The NFL came down on the Jets, Mike Tannenbaum, and Eric Mangini for failing to report Brett Favre's injury late last season.

The NFL assessed a total of $125,000 in fines to the New York Jets and former coach Eric Mangini on Wednesday for violating the league's rules on injury reporting with regard to former quarterback Brett Favre last season.

The Jets failed to place Favre, now with the Minnesota Vikings, on the injury report during the final month of last season, even though he had a torn biceps tendon.

 

The league announced it had fined the Jets $75,000, and Mangini and Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum $25,000 apiece. Mangini now coaches the Cleveland Browns.

You wonder why the NFL didn't come down on the Jets until now. It was pretty common knowledge that Favre wasn't 100% late last season. Then again, after months of physical play, you could probably stick just about any pro football player on that list.

This injury list is bogus. No team takes it seriously. It only exists for gambling purposes. The NFL gave the Jets a slap on the wrist. Now we can all move on from this nonstory.
