Manning was fined $8,258 for taunting Houston safety D.J. Swearinger following a 29-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders during Saturday's pre-season game.
Swearinger, known around the league as one of the premier trash talkers, caused Broncos receiver Wes Welker to leave the game due to a hit that caused a concussion earlier in the game.
Manning's comments when asked about the incident were:
"I accept it," Manning said. "Money well spent."
The Broncos players have to love the fact that Manning stood up for Welker like that. A football team is a family and Manning made sure he did his part to stand up for Welker after he suffered the injury earlier in the game.
