AJ Brown finally learned. After several weeks of receiving fines from the NFL for his touchdown celebrations, the Tennessee Titans receiver refrained on Sunday.
So far this season, Brown has incurred $19,000 in fines for throwing the football into the stands following touchdowns. First, it was $7,000, which he addressed on Twitter. Then, it was $12,000 for a second offense.
But against the Houston Texans on Sunday, Brown decided he would have a little fun instead. He didn’t throw it into the stands, but he did make people think he was going to. Check out the funny moment.

Brown has been having fun with those fines for weeks now, so it wasn’t surprising to see him carry that over to the field. Back in mid-December, the second-year receiver even compared his arm strength to that of Ryan Tannehill, his quarterback.
I can throw further than Tannehill but who asked me anyway 😂

It’s a good thing that Tannehill has been performing well. Otherwise, some people might have thought Brown was being serious.
The Ole Miss product came into Sunday only 76 yards away from his second-consecutive 1,000-yard season. That touchdown catch against Houston was No. 19 for his career and No. 11 on the season.
The Titans currently lead the Texans 17-9 at the beginning of the third quarter.
