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.
