NFL fines Irvin, 3 others for roles in Super Bowl shoving

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for his role in a scuffle with 18 seconds left in the Super Bowl. Three other players received lesser fines.

Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett and New England Patriots tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Michael Hoomanawanui were fined $8,628 each. Hoomanawanui was fined for unnecessary roughness, the others for striking an opponent late.

The shoving began after Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took a knee following cornerback Malcolm Butler's interception with 20 seconds left in the Patriots' 28-24 victory. Irvin was ejected and apologized for his actions.

The NFL said earlier that Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin was fined $11,025 for unsportsmanlike conduct after his 3-yard touchdown catch that gave the Seahawks a 24-14 lead.
