Malik Jackson fined by league for unsportsmanlike conduct

Malik Jackson has suffered his first financial hit since Super Bowl 50.

The Jaguars' defensive end was fined $24,309 by the NFL for his unsportsmanlike conduct this past Sunday against the Raiders, a league spokesman told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. Jackson was penalized twice for unsportsmanlike conduct, resulting in an ejection in the fourth quarter.

His first one came after abusive language to an official while protesting his flag for roughing the passer, which gave Oakland 30 yards in field position. Four plays later, Jackson was called for unnecessary roughness for shoving an offensive lineman during Sebastian Janikowski's 52-yard field goal attempt.

This is his first year into a six-year, $86.1 million deal with Jacksonville, which the defensive lineman signed in March. Jackson won a championship with the Broncos last season, and picked up an $8,681 fine for unnecessary roughness in the Super Bowl.
