DeAngelo Hall fined $7,500 for throwing official’s flag

The NFL has fined Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall $7,500 for throwing an official’s flag during Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots, a league official confirmed Friday evening.

Hall was called for defensive holding during a third-quarter play. Immediately after receiving the penalty, Hall picked up the flag and threw it upfield. Hall then was slapped with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

Hall has declined interview requests all week but coach Mike Shanahan said that Hall, as a defensive captain, must do a better job of maintaining his composure and displaying better leadership.
