Report: Terrell Owens fined $5,000 by NFL for tweeting too close to kickoff
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Terrell Owens has been fined $5,000 by the NFL for violating the league's social media policy by tweeting too close to kickoff Sunday.
Players must stop using social media 90 minutes before kickoff, the policy, which came down in August 2009, states. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Owens fine.
In August, Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco was fined $25,000 for tweeting and having an electronic device too close to kickoff and during a preseason game.
