Gruden and the team received fines this week related to not wearing masks during their game against the New Orleans Saints. The two separate fines come out to $350,000 total against Gruden and Las Vegas.
On Saturday, another fine was reportedly handed down to the Raiders, this time related to Las Vegas allowing a non-credentialed employee inside the locker room. According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, that fine is $50,000, bringing the total amount of fines handed down this week to $400,000.
Add this $50K fine to no-mask fines for Jon Gruden ($100K for Gruden, $250K for the team) and video of players at an indoor charity event with players not wearing masks… and it’s not good. https://t.co/mr4H8DRgd8
