Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been fined $9,115 by the NFL for his twerk celebration on ESPN’s Monday Night Football and $6,076 for his baby blue cleats, which violated the league’s uniform policy.
Brown’s total bill came out to a smooth $15,191, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

When asked for his response to the fine, Brown replied with perhaps one of the more timeless responses ever recorded, saying “nothing to a boss“.
The dance, which Brown told ESPN he calls the “Boomin”, cost the star wide receiver much more than the “couple hundred” he initially alleged the league fined him.
Brown lit the Redskins up Week 1, torching them for 126 yards, but more importantly two touchdowns, on only eight catches.
Washington Redskins corner Bashaud Breeland was the one covering Brown, despite the fact teammate Josh Norman, the $75 million man for the Redskins, was playing on the field across from him.
Washington’s defensive coordinator, Joe Barry, received a lot of heat following the game for keeping Norman away from Brown and not providing Breeland enough help in covering arguably the league’s best receiver.
Brown will suit up again for Week 2 when the Steelers take on the Cincinnati Bengals in an AFC North rivalry game Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
