New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is facing another fine from the NFL.

The NFL fined Beckham $24,309 for the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty he picked up Monday night against the Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Beckham drew the flag for taunting Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes in the second quarter Monday night. According to Pro Football Talk, it's already the third time that he's been fined this season.

Beckham was held to a career worst three catches for 23 yards in Monday night's loss to the Vikings. He told reporters this week he's going to do better.

"I think I just have to control what I can control," Beckham told reporters this week. "I can control myself. I can't control anything else but what I do. I definitely know I can do a better job at that."

ESPN notes that he was also fined $12,154 for a celebration in Week 1. Then in Week 2 he was docked $36,000 for a hit on New Orleans safety Kenny Vaccaro.

It was also the sixth unsportsmanlike conduct, unnecessary roughness or taunting penalty he's received since entering the league in 2014.
