Report: Mayfield gets fine for lewd gesture heavily reduced


Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield had his Week 16 fine for making a lewd gesture heavily reduced following an appeal, a source told ESPN’s Pat McManamon.

Mayfield was initially fined $10,026 but reportedly had the penalty lowered to $1,700. The NFL reportedly determined the facts presented against Mayfield in the appeal hearing didn’t support the fine.

Browns coach Freddie Kitchens – then the offensive coordinator – defended Mayfield after the fine was originally handed out, saying the gesture was an inside joke with members of the team.

The incident took place Dec. 23 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

Roughriders release Duron Carter, Alouettes interested


The Saskatchewan Roughriders released two-time CFL All-Star receiver/defensive back Duron Carter, the team announced Saturday night.

It wasn’t immediately clear what prompted the release, but Carter has been plagued by off-field issues throughout his career.

Carter contributed to the Roughriders on offense as a receiver and on defense as a cornerback over the last two seasons. He was used more on defense this year. As a receiver in 2017, Carter posted 1,043 yards and eight touchdowns.

Montreal Alouettes general manager Kavis Reed told the Montreal Gazette’s Herb Zurkowsky that he will reach out to Carter, who’s now a free agent.
