NFL fines Michael Thomas $30,000 for cell phone celebration

homasís celebration was a tribute to former Saints wide receiver Joe Horn, who did the same thing to celebrate a touchdown 15 years ago. Horn also got fined $30,000.

With his base salary of $915,361, Thomas makes $53,845 a game. The fine is more than 50 percent of his weekly pay, which means heíll be eligible to get a reduction on appeal. The NFL typically reduces a playerís fine if itís more than 25 percent of his weekly pay for a first offense, and more than 50 percent of his weekly pay for a second offense. Thomas had already been fined for a celebration once this season.

Officially, the NFL said Thomasís fine was ďfor using the phone as a prop and having a mobile device in the bench area.Ē Players and coaches are not allowed to have any communication devices other than NFL-approved tablets during games.

Has the league fined any of the four Jaguar players that were arrested in London?

We all saw this coming. They made it high to discourage this type of thing.
