Redskins star corner Josh Norman fined for interception celebration
A 15-yard penalty apparently wasn't enough punishment for Josh Norman's bow-and-arrow celebration, so the NFL decided to fine the Washington Redskins star cornerback $10,000 on Wednesday.
Norman, who was fined last week for his hit on Giants wideout Sterling Shepard, said he will appeal his latest punishment, which was doled out after he celebrated his fourth-quarter interception in Sunday's win over the Browns.

"I have my speech on it and we'll see what happens," Norman said, via ESPN. "I hope and pray they eliminate the $10,000 fine. That was too much. At the same time, we'll see how it goes and whatever the outcome is, I respect it and I respect the league and what they're trying to do.
"It's hard but it's fair. It's one of those things when you're the hunted you have to continue to rise above it all."
The league said Wednesday it will clarify what celebrations will draw flags and fines in the form of a video. Hopefully, the league provides this video to teams sooner rather than later.
