Carlos Dunlap is out $10,300 for tossing a shoe.

The NFL fined the Seattle Seahawks defensive end on Saturday for the unusual offense during last weekend's game against the Green Bay Packers, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

The shoe toss occurred early in the fourth quarter of a frustrating 17-0 loss for the Seahawks. After a play, Dunlap could be seen picking up a shoe appearing to belong to Packers offensive tackle Billy Turner and throwing it down the field.

Dunlap was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for the toss during the game, pushing the Packers well into Seahawks territory.

Dunlap wasn't the only Seahawk to get a call from the NFL after the game, as star wide receiver DK Metcalf was also fined $6,949 for an altercation with two Packers players in which he grabbed a facemask, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport

Metcalf was also ejected for the incident and tried to return to the huddle later, though he reportedly did not face a suspension for that offense.
