Raiders fined $800K for COVID violations during '20 season, keep sixth-round pick upon appeal

The NFL has issued disciplinary action to the Las Vegas Raiders for violating league COVID-19 protocols this past season.

The Raiders have been fined $800,000 for violating NFL and NFLPA COVID protocols during the 2020 season, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Saturday.

Las Vegas' 2020 sixth-round pick, which was initially stripped by the NFL after a Week 2 violation of protocols, has been reinstated upon appeal, according to Pelissero.

The New Orleans Saints, who the Raiders played in that Monday Night Football game in Week 2, were handed a fine of $700,000 by the league on Saturday but were also forced to forfeit a sixth-round pick in 2022.
