PITTSBURGH -- Steelers players say Pro Bowl wide receiver?Antonio Brown should be able to twerk and thrust as he chooses, without fine or penalty.Brown received his second unsportsmanlike conduct flag of the season for his two-pump twerking dance in the end zone during Sundays 43-14 win over the Chiefs.Thats what happens when you give someone (commissioner Roger Goodell) total power, said guard Ramon Foster, the teams player union rep. There are other guys who have done worse. ABs just having fun. Dont make it the No Fun League.Brown was fined $12,154 in Week 1 for a similar touchdown celebration (three pumps that time), and a second offense equals a $24,309 fine.According to the NFL rulebook, officials can police actions that are sexually suggestive or can otherwise be construed as being in poor taste.Browns dancing replicates a sketch from the television comedy Key & Peele called McCringleberrys excessive celebration.Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats said the NFLs rule is vague, citing yoga as something that could be perceived as suggestive but is really a nice artform of stretching. Moats then joked Brown was just stretching in front of 70,000 people.Since Antonio is a trailblazer with his celebrations this year, were still in a gray area, Moats said. At first it was [three] pumps, then we thought it was two, now were trying to figure it out. If he tries one and he gets flagged, then we know any pump is bad. Are shoulders OK? Because we have to figure it out. Its trial and error. We need to gather data.Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers agreed with the Steelers players, saying the NFL should embrace, not penalize, celebrations like the one Brown had.Thats the beauty of our game. We encourage our guys to be themselves, Rodgers said. You cant keep a guy like Mike Daniels quiet. You love that passion out there on the field. We talked about it a couple of games ago, Hey, express yourself. We need more of Jordy Nelson catching the ball and getting the fans involved. We all kind of ribbed him a little bit, but we loved that. We loved the energy and the emotion and the passion out there.You just cant let it affect your team in a negative way. They are doing some interesting penalties. I saw Antonio Brown got flagged a couple times for doing a Key and Peele dance. I think the NFL used that maybe on their Twitter site as promoting the excitement and fun of the game. So, I dont know where the line of that is. Theres jokes at times about the No Fun League. I hope we can keep the excitement and celebrations in the game and not try to restrict them like the NCAA does.During his Tuesday news conference, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said the Steelers would like clarity on what Brown can and cant do in the end zone. The league is releasing an explanatory video to teams in light of the rise in unsportsmanlike penalties, which are up 56 percent this season, according to ESPNs Stats & Information research.The way Foster sees it, Browns pockets are the only thing affected negatively by the dancing.The crowd enjoys it. Ive seen social media go crazy over it, Foster said. If anything, its business for the league.Information from ESPNs Jason Wilde and Rob Demovsky was used in this report.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots officially activated running back Dion Lewis to their 53-man roster Saturday, the team announced. The move comes almost one year to the day that Lewis tore his left ACL in a Nov. 8 game against the Washington Redskins.The Patriots had an open roster spot after waiving running back Tyler Gaffney on Thursday, and Lewis activation was widely anticipated. The team had until Nov. 17 to either activate him or place him on the injured reserve list.The 5-foot-8, 195-pound Lewis had opened the year on the physically unable to perform list after experiencing a setback that required a second surgery on his left knee (but not specifically his ACL). He has participated in eight practices since coming off the PUP list on Oct. 27.While Lewis is now officially activated to the 53-man roster, the Patriots still have a call to make on whether to include him on their 46-man game-day roster for Sunnday nights home contest against the Seattle Seahawks.dddddddddddd Those close to the situation have stressed that it will be a patient approach, and the Patriots have been pleased with Lewis primary replacement in the passing back role, James White.I think James White is a good player. What he does is good. Could somebody do it better? I dont know. But it would take quite a bit, I would say, based on where he is and how consistent hes been with what hes done, coach Bill Belichick said Friday. It would take somebody playing pretty good to be better than him.At his best, Lewis would seemingly fit that bill, as he was a sparkplug in seven games last season before tearing his ACL. He totaled 49 carries for 234 yards and two touchdowns to go along with 36 receptions for 388 yards and two touchdowns. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
