It took the majority of the season, but Baker Mayfield finally reeled in a big fine from the NFL. The rookie quarterback received a $10,000 fine from the league after making an inappropriate gesture following a touchdown pass.

Mayfield tossed his second touchdown of the game against the Cincinnati Bengals and then decided to make a relatively obscene gesture.

As a result, the league decided to hand down a fine for the Browns star.

Here's the play in question.

We're sure this won't be the last fine Mayfield receives from the league for making an obscene gesture. We all know what he did during his time at Oklahoma.

Mayfield is one of the more brash players in the league, but it's been exactly what Cleveland needed. The Browns are finally playing winning football and Mayfield has been a huge part of the team's success this season.

He'll take on the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday afternoon.
