Former Raven Ed Reed says $100,000 fine for Jack Del Rio ‘not enough’

Former Baltimore Ravens goaltender Ed Reed, who spent most of his career playing alongside a friend and teammate charged with murder, believes the $100,000 fine Washington commanders imposed on the defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio is “not good enough.”

On Friday, Washington commanders fined Del Rio $100,000 for calling the Jan. 6 Capitol riots “dust.”

Del Rio had made the “dust” comment in a tweet in which he questioned the left’s focus on the Jan. 6 riots while appearing not to possess the same level of interest in prosecuting those who are outraged across the country in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd.

Although Del Rio apologized for calling the riots “dust”, Ron Rivera, the Commanders head coach and longtime friend of Del Rio, publicly criticized his coach and friend for his comments while calling January 6 of an act of “domestic terrorism”.

On Saturday morning, Reed took to Twitter to say Del Rio’s punishment wasn’t severe enough.

“Today I am sick and tired! A dust to the top! 100,000 is not enough, money is nothing to a person who is retrained through coaching,” Reed wrote. “It’s always one, first it was Saban now its Jack to remind us what it’s like! Man, if you’re coached by him, put your pants on! It’s simple the good and the bad, the bad.

Del Rio, entering his third year with the Commanders, shut down his Twitter account over the weekend.
