Steelers will not lose a draft pick for Mike Tomlin stepping on the field
Today the Pittsburgh Steelers site announced that the team will not be losing a draft pick for their head coach stepping on the field against the Baltimore Ravens.
Steelers President Art Rooney II said today that the NFL has informed the team it will not be docked a pick in the 2014 Draft because of the incident involving Coach Mike Tomlin in the Thanksgiving night game against the Ravens in Baltimore.
For straying onto the field during a kickoff return by Jacoby Jones, Tomlin was fined $100,000, and at the time the NFL informed the Steelers that it could inflict additional punishment in the form of making the team forfeit a pick in this year’s draft. Now, that will not happen.
