Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin Statement on NFL Fine
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.
Coach Mike Tomlin apologizes for his bad timing and bad placement. He says it was completely unintentional. Mercury News quotes him in the article saying:
"There are repercussions of a blunder of that nature and I embrace it," he said. "With my position comes the charge of preserving and protecting the game of football. ... I think my biggest error on Thursday night is not realizing that play jeopardized the game from an integrity standpoint."
Steelers Sign Center/Guard David Snow
PITTSBURGH – The Steelers have signed center/guard David Snow, it was announced today.
Snow (6-4, 303) was originally signed by the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of Texas on April 30, 2012. He was released by the Bills on August 31, 2012 and spent the rest of the season on and off the Bills’ practice squad and active roster, starting two of five games played last season at center. Snow has not been on an NFL roster since being released by Buffalo on August 30, 2013.
The Steelers were granted a roster exemption for offensive tackle Rashad Butler after he was placed on the team’s Exempt List.
Ryan Clark believes that his coach did not intentionally interfere with Jones.
