Ya gotta love Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson. He will not sacrifice his art over a few measly shekels.
Burleson was fined 10,000 for an end-zone celebration consisting of flapping his arms like a bird and then simulating shooting up into the sky at the imaginary bird. The NFL deemed it too close to suggesting violence to an opponent, although Burleson countered that his gun could have been a Super Soaker water gun.
More to the immediate point, Burleson has no intention of curbing his expressions and even declared via the Detroit Free Press, Ill have something for Chicago. Im not going to stop celebrating.
The Bears have no intention of being Burlesons foil.
Oh, hes always doing something, scoffed nickel back D.J. Moore. Once he had boxing gloves. Hes one of those types of guys. I kind of like playing against him. Hes a little like Roy Williams signaling first down when he catches a pass. You dont know what hes going to do but Im not worried about him.
