Agent David Canter said San Diego Chargers safety Eric Weddle has been fined $10,000 by the team for remaining on the sideline at halftime of a Dec. 20 home game to watch his daughter dance in a program sponsored by the team’s cheerleaders.
Canter says he plans to file a grievance with the NFL Players Association.
Canter says he and Weddle didn’t plan to say anything about the fine, but changed their minds after Weddle and three other players were placed on injured reserve Monday and then told they will not travel to Sunday’s game at Denver.
That game could be the team’s last as the San Diego Chargers. Chairman Dean Spanos wants to move to a Los Angeles suburb.
Weddle’s contract is expiring and the team has declined to offer an extension.
