JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Absent linebacker Telvin Smith says the Jacksonville Jaguars fined him $88,650 for missing the team's mandatory, three-day minicamp this week.
Smith posted a picture of the fine letter on his Instagram story Saturday, adding "it's still love!!" The letter shows the Jaguars fined him $14,775 for missing the first day, $29,550 for the second and $44,325 for the third. The letter says the fines are required by the 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Defensive end Yannick Ngakoue, who wants a new contract, also skipped the camp and was expected to get fined equally.
