Williamson and two other NFL players had previously been threatened with a fine for supporting the first responders on 9/11 and the victims. Some reports had circulated suggesting the NFL would indeed fine three players, but it was never made official.

If they haven’t been fined at this point for honoring 9/11 then it’s likely the NFL front offices decided to turn a blind-eye.
