According to Glauber, players have been warned to keep trash talk "outside the white lines". (Link in Glauber tweet leads to an article behind a pay wall)

King adds that NFL Vice-President of Football Operations Ray Anderson told the players that they're on notice, and that over-the-top trash talk could draw fines and penalties.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed the reports on Twitter:

"Ray Anderson contacted multiple clubs this week so they could remind players (that) comments of a physically threatening nature are always taken into account in evaluating discipline for illegal physical contact on field," Aiello wrote.
