NFL Fines Bears LB Cassius Marsh for Taunting Steelers



Chicago Bears outside linebacker Cassius Marsh has been fined by the NFL for taunting the Pittsburgh Steelers bench on Monday night. 

Marsh was flagging for taunting on the play, which led to the Steelers getting a first down and eventually a field goal in what became a two-point victory. 

Marsh denied taunting the Steelers, his former club, but the NFL stood by the call from referee Tony Corrente.

“Keep in mind that taunting is a point of emphasis this year,” Corrente said to a pool reporter after the game. “With that said, I saw the player, after he made a big play, run toward the bench area of the Pittsburgh Steelers and posture in such a way that I felt he was taunting them.”

The play has now also hit Marsh in the wallet, fining him $5,972.

Marsh spent the latter part of the 2020 season and all of the 2021 offseason with the Steelers before being released. He joined the Bears on the week before the Steelers game and was activated from the practice squad.
