The NFL fined Roethlisberger $5,000 for a uniform violation because the star quarterback wore an Apple Watch when the Steelers hosted the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night, sources told ESPN.
Roethlisberger is said to be “livid” about the fine and is appealing it, according to sources. But NFL rules ban all electric devices that transmit messaging.
Don’t shed any tears for Roethlisberger. He has career earnings of $187 million dollars and he’ll make $26 million this year. He can pay the fine out of the change he’d find in his couch cushions.
