The Dallas Cowboys are paying a steep price for carrying their suspended players.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cowboys are facing a fine of at least $250,000 for having three suspended players on their roster, based on the team's remittance policy.
The Cowboys are set to start the year with starting linebacker Rolando McClain and starting defensive ends Randy Gregory and DeMarcus Lawrence suspended by the NFL for violating the league's policy on banned substances.
The league has yet to finalize their fine schedule, based on the number of players suspended on each team, but last season any team with at least 3 suspended players on their roster were subject to a $250,000 fine, and that number is unlikely to decrease for the upcoming season.
McClain and Lawrence have been suspended for the first four games and Gregory was originally handed a four-game ban, but is reportedly facing an even longer suspension after another violation.
