New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis has won his appeal against the NFL over his “Man of God” headband.
Demario Davis shared the news on his Instagram account Tuesday.
“So my agent just told me that I won my appeal and won’t have to pay the headband fine!!”
“Always glory above so I’m taking every penny of that original $7,017 fine and donating it to St. Dominics hospital.”
Davis was fined $7,017 by the National Football League for a “uniform infraction” during a Sept. 22 game against the Seattle Seahawks, for wearing the headband.
Davis shared that he is taking the $7,017 he was fined and donating it to St. Dominic Hospital in Mississippi to help build a new ER.
The New Orleans Saints player is a native Mississippian. His mother worked for the hospital while he was in High School.
