Earlier this season, New Orleans Saints star Cameron Jordan received a major fine from the NFL.

Jordan was fined $50,000 for allegedly faking an injury during the team's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The star pass rusher made it clear he was not faking and appealed the league's decision.

Well, on Thursday afternoon, Jordan won his appeal.

"Saints’ DE Cameron Jordan won his appeal of the $50,000 fine for violating the league’s rule on allegedly faking an injury during a Week 13 loss to the Buccaneers, per source. Fine now rescinded," ESPN's Adam Schefter said.

One Saints reporter thinks that's good news for the team on its appeal as well.

"Would seem to indicate that the Saints would win theirs as well," Saints reporter Jeff Nowak said.

Other fans are shocked the NFL admitted it made a mistake in this matter.

"Wait the NFL admitted to a mistake???" one fan said sarcastically. 

"Good for him!!! That was such a bs fine! If there’s one player who’s integrity I would not question, it would be Cam Jordan. (And Demario Davis) fine two players," added another.

What do you think of the NFL's decision?
