Antonio Brown Was Fined TWICE After Win Over Redskins

Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown was fined twice after the Steelers 38-16 win over the Washington Redskins.

Antonio Brown is the best wide receiver in the NFL, also known as the No Fun League. The league lived up to its nickname, fining Brown for twerking after a touchdown.

That wasn't enough for the NFL though, as they also fined Brown for wearing blue cleats.

Antonio Brown told me he got two NFL fines - one for TD dance, one for blue cleats. "Nothing to a boss," Brown said.https://t.co/o14K0QLk26

">Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported the news and tweeted Brown's response to the fines:

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, The Steelers recently restructured the wideout's contract so Brown should have no trouble paying the fines levied upon him by the NFL. Brown had a base salary of $6.25 million before the restructured contract added an extra $4 million to that.

Brown has 526 receptions since entering the league in 2010, which is the most for a wideout in his first six years in the NFL. He is the only player in NFL history to have two consecutive seasons wit 125+ receptions.
