A New Orleans Saints team captain fined over $7,000 for wearing a headband with the words “Man of God” displayed across the front has won his appeal. 

Linebacker Demario Davis took to Instagram Tuesday night to say that he was victorious in his appeal of a $7,017 fine imposed on him by the National Football League for a uniform infraction during a Sept. 22 game against the Seattle Seahawks. 

Davis’ violation was wearing a gold “Man of God” headband with black letters underneath his helmet. The phrase “Man of God” was visible at points in the game when Davis took off his helmet.
