#Eagles WR A.J. Brown was fined $13,261 for unsportsmanlike conduct for spanking the goal post with his towel after a TD catch in last week’s rout of the #Titans. The catch was reversed after review, but Brown scored again on the next snap.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 10, 2022
The catch was reversed after review, but Brown scored again on the very next snap anyway. Brown explained the meaning behind the celebration after the game.
“Today I’m going to have to give you a whooping, but I still love you, though” Brown said with a laugh. “That’s where the hug came in at the end.”
This isn’t the first time the ex-Titan has been penalized for celebrations — he was fined another $10k earlier this season for pointing at two Pittsburgh defenders following a TD catch.
