After Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown scored his second touchdown against the Washington Redskins, the 28-year-old celebrated with a twerk.

Brown was flagged on the play for unsportsmanlike conduct — a violation, it turns out, of the league’s strict rules regarding celebrations. Brown’s, um, dance, according to the NFL, could be deemed as a premeditated act that was sexually suggestive in nature.

According to page 200 of the 292 pages of the NFL bylaws, that’s a violation.

Whether further discipline will be required for the dancer is yet to be determined. But, we have seen a player get fined in the past for a sexually suggestive celebration.

Denver Bronco linebacker Vonn Miller had to pay $11,567 for his … thrusting sack celebration just last season.

Brown will likely have many more opportunities to showcase his dance moves, but he may have to retire that one.
