Player fined for offensive tweeting

  • Cornerback Don Jones of the Miami Dolphins has been fined for tweeting "horrible" and "omg" after openly gay player Michael Sam was drafted by the NFL. 

    NBC Sports said the player will undergo training for the comments he made on social media before he rejoins the team activities.

    "I take full responsibility for them and I regret that these tweets took away from his draft moment," he said.
