SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The NFL plans to fine former Utah head coach Urban Meyer and the Jacksonville Jaguars for OTA violations, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The NFL insider reported the OTA related fines on Thursday, July 1. OTA stands for “organized team activities.”

“NFL is expected to fine three teams today for Organized Team Activity violations, per sources,” Schefter tweeted.

In another tweet, the ESPN insider specified that the teams were the Jaguars, San Francisco 49ers, and Dallas Cowboys.

In addition to organizational fines, the NFL will reportedly fine first-year Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer.

The reported fines were $200,000 for the Jaguars and $100,000 for Meyer.

Meyer fine is reportedly $50,000 more than the penalties given to fellow head coaches Kyle Shanahan of the 49ers and Mike McCarthy of the Cowboys.

The details of the violations weren’t reported.

Schefter also reported that Jacksonville was “ordered to forfeit two OTA practices during the first week of the 2022 offseason.”

After spending his coaching career in college football, the Jaguars gig is Meyer’s first time in the NFL.

Meyer and the Jaguars will begin the 2021 season against the Houston Texans on September 12.
