Falcons’ Takkarist McKinley won’t be fined by NFL for dropping F-bomb

A rookie mistake won’t cost Falcons’ linebacker Takkarist McKinley this time.

It’s been reported by multiple sources that McKinley won’t be fined for using an explicative on live television after his name was called with the No. 26 overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft on Thursday.

In an interview with former Falcon Deion Sanders, the linebacker out of UCLA gave an impassioned speech about his late-grandmother and his promise to make it to the NFL before slipping an f-bomb.

McKinley's response to the slip up, "Fine me later."
