DeSean Jackson, one of the NFL’s smallest skill-position players, is lighter in the wallet today after picking on someone roughly his size.

The NFL fined Jackson $7,875 for his facemask penalty on Raiders punter Marquette King at the end of a 32-yard punt return in the second quarter of the Eagles’ 49-20 win over the Raiders.
