The NFL has responded in kind, fining Donald twice for his outburst in the 28-0 defeat in Santa Clara. Donald was fined $9,115 for unnecessary roughness and $12,154 for unsportsmanlike conduct, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, according to a source with knowledge of the fines.
Donald is set to make $1.34 million in base salary this season, per spotrac.com. When divvied up into 16 game checks, Donald's total fines of $21,269 account for close to a fourth of his gross income from his Week 1 check, and that's well before Uncle Sam gets his cut.
