Berrian told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that he has been fined $5,000 for wearing non-conforming cleats.
Berrian, who had nine catches for 89 yards, said he’ll ditch the yellow shoes.
The next guy to watch in this regard is Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco, who wore gold cleats on Monday night against the Steelers, along with a gold mouthpiece. For Chad, the fine could be much more than $5,000, given his history of non-conformity. In August, for example, Ochocinco was fined $25,000 for violating the league’s Twitter policy; others — including teammate Terrell Owens — have been fined only $5,000.
AFC information manager Corry Rush tells us that an answer will be provided on Friday. We’ve got a feeling we’ll all hear from Chad before then.
