The NFL assessed $125,000 in fines to the New York Jets and former coach Eric Mangini on Wednesday for violating the league's rules on reporting injuries last season.

The Jets failed to place quarterback Brett Favre, who's now with the Minnesota Vikings, on the injury report during the final month of last season even though he had a torn biceps tendon.

Watching football on Sundays will be a whole new experience with NFL Network's new channel, NFL RedZone. Find out why.

The league announced it had fined the Jets $75,000 and Mangini and Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum $25,000 apiece. Mangini now coaches the Cleveland Browns.

"We have been fully cooperative with the League throughout this investigation and respect their decision," the Jets announced in a statement.

Said Mangini in a statement released by the Browns: "I have worked with the league on this matter and now consider it closed. My focus is on our preparations for (Sunday's game against) the Broncos."

Hiding injuries could affect an opponent's preparation, and the NFL has stepped up its policing of such practices. Commissioner Roger Goodell told NFL Network's Rich Eisen on Wednesday that he had sent a memo to all 32 teams "making sure they understand the importance of this."

"I believe in following the rules, whether it's on the field of play or it's our policies," Goodell said. "We believe those rules should be followed, and if clubs don't, or other personnel don't, we will take disciplinary action. This is an important rule to the integrity of the game. All clubs are following the rule. And if someone violates it, we will discipline as we did with the Jets today."

Last week, Tannenbaum admitted the Jets should have listed Favre as "probable" on their injury reports. That came one day after Favre said he believed he was hurting the Jets because of the injury and discussed it with the coaches and the front office. He said he would have been willing to sit out, even though that would have ended his streak of consecutive starts, which now stands at 270 games.

Tannenbaum said the Jets didn't list Favre on the report because the injury wasn't severe enough to require daily treatment and there was never any doubt the quarterback would play. Tannenbaum also assumed full responsibility for the mistake.

Mangini said he has always abided by the league's guidelines for injury reports.

"That was true there (in New York). It's true here (in Cleveland)," Mangini said. "It'll be true every week of the season and that's how we approach it."

Favre led the Jets to an 8-3 start and first place in the AFC East. But he threw nine interceptions down the stretch and the team lost four of its last five games, missing the playoffs. Favre retired after the season and later was released by the Jets, but he came out of retirement last month and signed with the Vikings.

Favre told reporters last week that he might not be able to play in all 16 games with the Vikings, even after his biceps tendon was surgically repaired. He said he's playing with a torn rotator cuff and suggested he might have a cracked rib.

Favre completed 14 of 21 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' season-opening 34-20 victory over Mangini's Browns on Sunday.


wow he gets fined 125k while his mentor whom he learned all this crap from gets a slap on the wrist for out right cheating. SAD!

That's all fine and dandy, but where is Belicheat* fine for placing A$$ Chin on the injury report with a "shoulder" injury week in and week out over the past 3 seasons? :scratchchin:

I'm sure a few minutes under Goodell's desk took care of that :chuckle:

You guys are obsessed with Belichick than Randy Lerner.

and that says a lot.

He got caught doing something I guarantee every team in the NFL does. Let it go.

Every team videotapes defensive signals even after being warned by the league and deliberately thumbing their noses at the rules against such videotaping?

News to me.

Every team cheats.

Guaranteed. Even the Browns (though it hasn't helped them at all :sofunny:)

Lot of things probably happen in the NFL, that we will probably never know about. To think that the NFL is completely transparent and that something like Refs being paid off or that incidents like what happened with the Pats are not happening throughout the league (or in College even), is being extremely naive.

The only difference between the Pats and the rest of the NFL is....The Pats got caught.

I'm sure every team does try to gain some kind of advantage, whether its looking at different formations, timing the snap count, etc. But what the Pats* did was pretty egregious and brazen. I mean, putting a cameraman on the OPPOSING TEAM'S sideline to videotape signals? And after they had already been caught cheating once before? Come on, man.

No, that's a tv cameraman with ADD. The league confiscated a hand-held camera from the Patriots sideline. Use your brain. Hand signals are directed across the field. Where better to view them than from your own sideline?

That photo was debunked, but nobody cares because its a cool photo.

What was really brazen about Bellichick's cheating was that he had the balls to do it to Mangini who would know exactly what was going on.

He got caught by the Packers and they were nice enough to tell the Pats never again. To do it to Mangini's Jets knowing what Mangini knows....I don't know if that was ballsy or just stupid.

Maybe Bill was mad at Mangini for taping him in the playoff game prior. :noidea:

The Jets were caught videotaping at Gillette Stadium last season and the Patriots had that New York employee removed from the area, according to published reports on Wednesday. Jets coach Eric Mangini said his team received permission to film behind both end zones during the playoff game in January.
