Plummer Fined

The NFL is fining Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer $5,000 for making an obscene gesture. Plummer and coach Mike Shanahan aren't commenting, but Plummer did apologize after it occurred during last week's game against Miami.

Plummer reached his hand behind his helmet and made the gesture while sitting on the bench after throwing an interception in the 20-to-17 win. He's thrown six picks and no touchdowns in Denver's last two games, and his 17 interceptions are second most in the NFL.

Plummer's actions stirred up big-time debate over whether it was a sign that he doesn't have the composure to lead the team deep into the playoffs.

Despite Plummer's troubles, both Shanahan and owner Pat Bowlen say the Broncos intend to keep the quarterback for the long term.
