Florida Times-Union’s John Reid reports that the specific fine for the Jaguars came from violating the non-contact rule, and the AP’s Mark Long reports that the fine stems from the June 1 practice involving contact drills between wide receivers and defensive backs.
The Jaguars issued a response to the fines, per Long: “The Jaguars are vigilant about practicing within the CBA rules and will re-emphasize offseason training rules as they relate to contact.”
