There are certain truths about life. Death and taxes are both guarantees, but so are Pittsburgh Steelers Antonio Brown touchdown celebrations. Regardless of the NFL’s stance on specific celebrations, it rarely stops Brown from doing something over-the-line when he hits pay dirt.
Some of his more memorable celebrations would have to be the “three pumps”, the “beanie wiggle” and the “fireman pole” in past years. It also should be noted all three of these, and there are many more, drew a flag and a 15-yard penalty on the black and gold.
Since then, the NFL has relaxed it’s stance on celebrations, but Las Vegas isn’t buying Brown will stay within the rules when he steps onto the field in 2017. In fact, the placed prop bets on both how many touchdown receptions Brown will have next year, as well as how many excessive celebration penalties he will have called against him too.
