Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey didn’t hold back in his criticism of NFL field judge Dale Shaw and it could end up costing him up to $25,000. That’s according to the precedent set last month when the league fined Josh Norman $25,000 for his postgame comments following a London matchup between Washington and the Cincinnati Bengals.

"By far, the worst official in the NFL," Ramsey said after the game about Shaw. "He needs to be fired 100 percent. Terrible, terrible, terrible.”

"You couldn't talk to him when I was trying to let him know of the push-offs and the hands to the face, stuff like that. He kind of gave me a smirk, honestly, and laughed it off ... I feel like the whole officiating crew were homers."

There's no precedent for the kind of fine Ramsey would receive except for Norman’s fine, so it’s likely that Ramsey’s will fall in line with that.
