Steelers WR Antonio Brown Fined $10K For Unsportsmanlike Conduct In Redskins Game
Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was fined $10,000 for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty (taunting) during Sunday's 27-12 win over Washington, the NFL confirmed to the Tribune-Review.
Brown was penalized for running into the end zone backwards from the 20-yard line during a third-quarter 78-yard punt return that was ultimately called back because of a block in the back penalty.
It was the third unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for Brown dating back to the preseason last year.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin wasn't happy with the taunting by Brown and said earlier in the week that it "wasn't respectful" and that he spoke to both Brown and the team about the incident.
