BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns star Odell Beckham Jr. was fined an undisclosed amount by the NFL for fighting Baltimore’s Marlon Humphrey. The wide receiver said the penalty would have been harsher if he had retaliated.

Beckham wouldn’t disclose how much he was fined Friday after joking it was $250,000.

The three-time Pro Bowler tangled with Humphrey several times Sunday and the two got locked in a heated brawl in the third quarter when the Ravens cornerback appeared to choke Beckham while he was on the ground.

Beckham said he had chances to strike back at Humphrey, but “I kind of just let the moment pass and I sort of regret letting the moment pass but I’ve come a long way.”

Beckham was aware the Ravens posted a video earlier this week claiming Humphrey’s innocence, but said he has moved on.

“It’s done,” he said. “We play them twice. We’ll see them again.”
