Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garçon has taken to spinning the football on the ground after several catches this season.
It’s an act that teammate Santana Moss made famous years ago, but head coach Mike Shanahan recently praised this specific display of excitement after a big play or a first down that, when done correctly, in no way should be looked at as taunting the opposing team.
But the officials in last Sunday’s Redskins-Browns game apparently took exception to Garçon spinning the football on the ground after the catch and pointing at it, and flagged him for taunting — a 15-yard penalty.
Shanahan was asked today by the media if Garçon was guilty of taunting.
