(CBS) Steelers star receiver Antonio Brown may have set an NFL first when he was penalized and subsequently fined by the league for twerking in the end zone following a touchdown in his team’s win against the Bengals in Week 1. Officially, Brown was penalized for excessive celebration.
With some time to reflect, Brown is now aiming to keep his twerking to “two pumps” should he choose that route to celebrate another touchdown.
“I got to be smart in regards to that,” Brown told the Doug Gottlieb Show on Tuesday. “I never want to put my team in a bad predicament. Maybe I’ll keep (the twerking) to a minimum of two pumps instead of three.”
Brown was fined $9,115 for his excessive celebration. He was second in the NFL in receiving yards last season.
