Chicago Bears DL Aaron Lynch Fined for Celebration vs. Bills

Chicago Bears defensive lineman Aaron Lynch said that he didn't mind if the NFL fined him for his excessive celebration penalty against the Buffalo Bills last week, and that's exactly what the league did on Saturday. 

Lynch, who was assessed a 15-yard penalty for his pelvic-thrusting celebration after a sack against the Bills, was fined just over $10,000 by the league, officials announced. 

After the celebration, Lynch told media that he welcomed a fine, and said he would do it again if given the chance. 

"If they want to fine me for having fun doing something I love, then fine me," he said. 

Lynch was also fined for a face mask penalty he was assessed during the game, and linebacker Danny Trevathan was fined $20,054 for a roughing the passer penalty.
