Report: Steelers fine Antonio Brown $10,000 for locker room Facebook Live

Antonio Brown’s Facebook Live recorded in the locker room after the Steelers’ divisional round win over the Kansas City Chiefs will reportedly cost the wide receiver $10,000.

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported that Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, who said last week that Brown would be punished, told players at a team meeting about the fine for violating the team's social media policy.

According to NBC ProFootballTalk, Brown could face further penalties, as the NFL also has a social media policy, which prohibits players from using social media from 90 minutes before kickoff through the end of postgame media obligations.

Tomlin, whose comments were overheard off-camera and included a vulgar term to describe the New England Patriots, asked the team if anyone had a problem with the decision to fine Brown $10,000, Glazer reported. He then said it was time to move on.

Brown has apologized for the video.

It was also reported Sunday that Brown has a six-figure marketing deal with Facebook.
