Brown fined for unsportsmanlike conduct
The NFL fined Steelers receiver Antonio Brown $10,000 for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty during last week's 27-12 win over Washington.
Brown was penalized for running into the end zone backward from the 20-yard line during a 78-yard punt return in the third quarter that ultimately was called back because of a block in the back.
It was the third unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for Brown dating to last year's preseason.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin wasn't happy with Brown's taunting. He said it “wasn't respectful” and that he addressed the matter with Brown and the team.
