Antonio Brown reportedly fined $10,000 by Steelers for locker room video

AP

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said last week that the team would discipline wide receiver Antonio Brown for sharing a video from the locker room on Facebook Live and that discipline reportedly includes a five-figure fine.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that Tomlin told players at a team meeting that Brown was fined $10,000 for violating the team’s social media policy. The league’s policy prohibits the use of social media from 90 minutes before kickoff through the end of postgame media obligations, so Brown may face other penalties.

Per Glazer, Tomlin asked if anyone had a problem with that decision and then said it was time to move on to get ready for the Patriots. Brown apologized for posting the video and creating what he called a “total distraction” to his teammates leading up the game against New England.

NFL Media reported Sunday that Brown has a six-figure marketing deal with Facebook, which got a lot of publicity as a result of the video. Brown would only say “top secret” when asked about a deal with the company, but the net effect on his bank account will still be a positive one if he’s in business with the social network.

  1. I bet there are 53 ped tests going on right now or about to happen. All for the Steelers players. I imagine Goodell is handing out peds to the patriot players now….well one of his assistants is handing them out.

    Because Goodell and the league office have been helping the Pats? Cold air deflates pats balls, 1st and 4th draft pick,$1 million fine, 4 game suspension for TB12. Cold air deflates Steelers balls, nothing to see here.

    Sometimes it’s almost sad to see the dementia caused by advanced patsanoia but then we see it impacting a fish fan and realize just how good it is to be a fan of a relevant team.

    “they’re still talking

    Ugh!

  5. When the next CBA comes up for negotiation, we’re going to see the NFL take a hardline stance on what players will be allowed to do on team/league time.
    The NFL is getting a first hand look now of how advertisers and ticket buyers are getting fed up with players turning game day into their own personal platforms to spew their agendas.
    Advance your brand? Do it on Tuesday.
    Spout your political beliefs? Do it on Tuesday.

  6. Seems kinda stiff. Belichick wouldn’t have fined Brown a dime just for pimping his brand. In fact he probably would have rewarded him with a free one way ticket to AZ or Cleveland.

  7. Don’t you worry about not being able to afford that next pair of shoes Antonio, Belichick will happily pay $10k for such priceless bulletin board material before a big game.

    Poor Chippy….when was the last time the Dolphins played a game this time of year?

  9. In addition to “creating an unnecessary distraction” by Facetiming Tomlin telling him “not to create any unnessary distractions” there’s one thing no Pittsburgh fan can deny

    The Steelers eeked out a 2 point win with 6 field goals and Brown was preening like a proud bird

    The Patriots won by as many points as Pittsburgh could score all game – but they were acting as if they played the worst game of their lives

    That doesn’t bode well for the Steelers… great organization, but some really stupid players
