Saints' Michael Thomas fined $30,000 for cellphone celebration

The NFL has fined New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas $30,000 for using a cellphone as a prop and having a mobile device in the bench area last Sunday.

Thomas brought back former Saints receiver Joe Horn’s memorable 2003 celebration by retrieving a hidden cellphone from around the bottom of a goalpost. Horn was also fined $30,000 for his celebration 15 years ago, but that had been his second violation of the season.

Thomas’ cellphone celebration followed a 72-yard touchdown catch that sealed the Saints’ 45-35 victory over the then-unbeaten Rams and gave Thomas 12 catches for 211 yards. Thomas was penalized for the celebration.
