Mike Tomlin was fined 100k and Steelers still could lose a draft pick

The NFL has fined Steelers coach Mike Tomlin $100,000 for the sideline incident during the Thanksgiving game against the Ravens.
The league will also consider stripping the Steelers of a draft pick once the order is set and compensatory picks are handed out.

Tomlin apologized for his “embarrassing, inexcusable and illegal” blunder Tuesday but said it was not intentional and that he had lost his place along the M&T Bank Stadium sideline. He was interviewed Sunday by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and spoke Monday with Anderson and VP of football operations Merton Hanks.

The coach issued the following statement through the Steelers on Wednesday after the league made its decision: “As I stated yesterday, I take full responsibility for my actions, and I apologize for causing negative attention to the Pittsburgh Steelers organization. I accept the penalty that I received. I will no longer address this issue as I am preparing for an important game this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.”
