As one might expect, Antonio Brown is pleased with the development – and already planning his end-zone festivities.
“It’s amazing,” Brown said, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. “I’m sure the guys are looking forward to it, the O-line, some of the guys who don’t get to celebrate with the guys who are getting in the end zone. I think it will be fun.”
Brown specifically mentioned that he hasn’t danced with center Maurkice Pouncey.
The rule change follows a torrent of criticism directed at the league and makes it legal to, among other things, celebrate with teammates or use the football as a prop.
Brown was flagged for excessive celebration on three different occasions last season alone, each time taking a hit to the bank account afterward. The fines added up to $57,733.
The perennial Pro Bowler is likely just one of many who will be taking full advantage of the new rules.
