Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin released a statement saying that he’ll indeed pay the $100,000 fine that the NFL handed down to him for obstructing Jacoby Jones during last week’s game.
“As I stated yesterday, I take full responsibility for my actions, and I apologize for causing negative attention to the Pittsburgh Steelers organization. I accept the penalty that I received. I will no longer address this issue as I am preparing for an important game this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins,” Tomlin said.
Smart move by Tomlin. I’m sure he’ll be careful of where he stands next time.
