FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Michael Vick has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for an obscene hand gesture toward fans following last week's loss to New Orleans.
The fine was confirmed Wednesday by Reggie Roberts, the Falcons' vice president for communications.
Vick rushed for 166 yards in the 31-13 loss, just 7 yards short of his own NL records for a quarterback in a game. But that didn't make up for a dismal performance by the Falcons, who were booed loudly following their fourth straight loss and he showed his unhappiness by making the gesture with both hands.
Vick said he heard an especially disturbing insult from a male fan as he walked off the Georgia Dome field.
