Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has reportedly drawn the first taunting fine of his career. As far as he's concerned, it's "money well spent".

Not carrying a reputation as a trash talker, one might be surprised to learn of Manning's latest fine. However, his "taunt" (seen in video below) was directed at Houston Texans defensive back D.J. Swearinger.

Swearinger, the play before a Manning touchdown to Emmanuel Sanders, laid out Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker. The hit gave Welker a game-ending concussion.

Manning took issue with the hit, giving Swearinger a piece of his mind after the touchdown throw.

ESPN NFL reporter Chris Mortensen was the first to report of Manning's fine, including Manning's response.
