New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell was fined $13,369 by the NFL on Tuesday for his crude touchdown celebration in Cleveland.

After scoring against his former team on Sept. 20, Crowell took the football and wiped it against his rear end before firing it into the stands. It made for a viral moment from New York’s 21-17 loss to previously winless Cleveland , and earned Crowell a scolding from coach Todd Bowles.

“It was inexcusable,” Bowles said after the game. “We talked about it and it will never happen again.”

Crowell insisted he wasn’t trying to send a message to the team for which he played four seasons before signing with the Jets as a free agent in March. He said he was just having fun, but felt bad about the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty his celebration drew.

The news doesn’t all stink for Crowell, who actually landed a promotional deal with Dude Wipes — a company that sells a toilet paper substitute for men.

Both the company and Crowell posted photos on social media of the running back holding boxes of the wipes.
