Nate Burleson went hunting and the NFL has made him pay the price.
The Detroit Lions wide receiver was fined $10,000 by the league for his touchdown celebration in Sunday’s comeback victory at Philadelphia. Burleson was not penalized on the play.
After hauling in his pass from quarterback Matthew Stafford in the corner of the end zone during the fourth quarter, Burleson flapped his arms as if he was an Eagle in flight. Then, he pretended to shoot the bird down.
