NEW YORK (AP) — Jets running back Isaiah Crowell has been fined $13,369 by the NFL for his crude touchdown celebration in Cleveland.

After scoring a touchdown against his former team on Sept. 20, Crowell took the football and wiped it against his rear end before firing it into the stands. It made for a viral moment from New York’s loss to previously winless Cleveland, and earned Crowell a scolding from coach Todd Bowles.

The news isn’t all bad for Crowell, who landed a promotional deal with Dude Wipes — a company that sells a toilet paper substitute for men.

Among other fines: Atlanta’s Brian Poole was docked $20,054 for a horse-collar tackle and $20,054 for roughing the passer for a total of $40,108; and Minnesota’s Anthony Barr was fined $10,026 for a facemask call and $20,054 for a horse-collar tackle for a total of $30,080.
