One expensive bird: Rex's gesture costs $50,000

Two middle fingers to a crowd of Bills fans from Titans owner Bud Adams: $250,000.

One middle finger from Rex Ryan after facing "extreme provocation" by Dolphins fans at a MMA event: $50,000.

A historic year for bird flipping in the NFL: priceless.

The Associated Press reports that the Jets fined Ryan $50,000 for his "obscene gesture." (As a transplanted New Yorker, I think of it as a way to say hello.)

The NFL could still look to fine the coach under its personal conduct policy, but the team's preemptive move could potentially sway the league from getting involved.

UPDATE: Chris Mortensen reports that the NFL was confident the Jets would handle the issue. And so they have.

Rex will get his 50K back in some manner....maybe by selling these at games?

Thought this was pretty clever, especially for being created by a Jest fan.

So if he were to flip both fingers, would have been $100k ? ROFL
