The Pittsburgh Steelers received some good news from the NFL today.
As reported by the franchise's official website:
"The NFL has informed the team it will not be docked a pick in the 2014 Draft because of the incident involving Coach Mike Tomlin in the Thanksgiving night game against the Ravens in Baltimore."
The incident in question involved coach Tomlin stepping onto the field and appearing to impede the path of Baltimore Ravens returner Jacoby Jones.
With the player looking set to return for a touchdown prior to Tomlin's intervention, Jones and the Ravens were rightly angered when Tomlin's actions led to the player being tackled.
In the immediate aftermath, Tomlin received a $100,000 fine and there had been suggestions that the Steelers could lose a draft pick as further punishment.
But with the news today Steelers fans can rest easy, and their coach can be content knowing that his fairly idiotic actions didn't affect the franchise's offseason activity.
Maybe the league would have taken a different view had Pittsburgh won that game, but the Ravens got the upper handed with a 22-20 victory.
