    Antonio Brown fined $10,000 for taunting against Redskins

    Steelers Antonio Brown fined $10,000 for taunting against Washington in Week 8

    By Neal Coolong on Nov 3



    Brown picked up the Steelers' first fine since Week 2 for his backpedaling incident against Washington.

    According to Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been fined $10,000 for running backward 20 yards into the end zone on an otherwise penalized play during the Steelers' 27-12 win over Washington in Week 8.

    There aren't formal announcements for fines, and typically, news of them are brought to the attention of the media by the player or the player's agent. Brown hasn't confirmed or denied the report, but it wouldn't be surprising if that was the case.

    He was penalized 15 yards for taunting on the play, but the Redskins accepted the illegal block in the back penalty on cornerback Curtis Brown instead.

    It breaks a string of four consecutive games without a fine for a Steelers player. Linebacker Lawrence Timmons had the last fine, getting docked $21,000 for a hit on Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez in Week 2.

    He deserves it. Not the Steelers way.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Amos Jones should have cussed him out for it like Dick LeBeau did to Anthony Smith when Killswitch did his Deion Sanders impression following an interception 5 years ago.

    How about this angle - why do the Steelers risk their largest investment at WR returning so many punts? Why not put Wally, Sanders, Rainey, etc back there - one of their cheaper options.

    Simple. None of them are as good at returning punts as Brown is.

    not even close, Antonio Brown is a threat to score a TD every time he touches the ball.

    really???

    the numbers dont support this at all. he has 4 TD's for his career, 2 on returns and 2 on catches.

    i love what AB brings to the table, but lets be factual.

    I meant to say every time he touches the ball on punt returns in answer to why AB is being used there instead of some other players.

    and hasn't AB had a couple of TD punt returns brought back because of penalties, this past one against the Redskins and earlier in the season against the Raiders?
