THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — After being fined by the NFL for a uniform violation against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1, Los Angeles Rams kicker Matt Gay made a significant adjustment to his gear.
Gay tweeted Friday morning that he was fined $5,000 for wearing pants that were too short. He opted for an oversized look in training that day.
“Thanks guys, now I feel safe and I can do my job super well,” Gay wrote in the tweet.
The Rams kicker wasn’t the only player in the league to be penalized for his matchday ensemble. Houston Texans defensive end Jerry Hughes also tweeted Friday his displeasure at being fined for violating the NFL’s uniform and equipment rules.
“Out here we fight for a W!!! But you guys want me to focus on how my pants are riding up,” Hughes wrote in his post along with a picture of the memo he received from the NFL.
Gay and the Rams meet the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday and are looking for their first win of the 2022 season.
