According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Pittsburgh Steelers are guaranteed to lose a late-round draft pick for the actions on the sidelines Thanksgiving night of head coach Mike Tomlin.
According to La Canfora, the $100,00 fine given to Tomlin won’t be the end of it and the league is not finalizing that decision until after all compensatory picks have been passed out.
On Wednesday, NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Ray Anderson indicated in statement that the Steelers could suffer a modification or forfeiture of draft picks as a result of Tomlin’s sideline incident in the game against the Baltimore Ravens. Those potential modifications, according to Anderson’s statement, will be considered after the final order of the 2014 draft has been determined.
Before anyone gets too excited here, La Canfora doesn’t exactly have the best track record, so take this report for what it’s worth.
