The Jaguars fired Coughlin a day after an arbitrator ruled that fines against several team members were excessive. Coughlin notably had a dispute with Ramsey during the 2019 season, which led to his trade to the Rams. Fournette was fined $99,000 last season for sitting on the bench in Week 17 while inactive.
Fournette used a gif to describe his reaction to Coughlin’s dismissal.
Ramsey responded with two emojis.
Jaguars cornerback A.J. Bouye said that Coughlin’s fines were pointless. He told the Florida Times-Union he was docked $10,000 for skipping a mandatory yoga session.
“I know what work bests for me as a player, and they didn’t want to hear that,” he told the paper. “I remember one time I had an injury, and I got a little work done here, but I wanted to do all my work in my [hometown], and they were kind of getting on me.
“You never really know what you’re going to get fined for until it happens. You’ve got to find a way to appeal it and hope it won’t happen again. I’m just finding out about who got fined all that money. I hate that it happened. People laugh because it doesn’t happen anywhere else. They just laugh at us when it happens.”
