Steelers will lose a draft pick for Tomlin’s sideline incident

Steelers will lose a draft pick for Tomlin’s sideline incident

According to Jason La Canfora and Pro Football Talk, the Steelers will, in fact, lost a draft pick for Mike Tomlin’s actions on Thanksgiving against the Baltimore Ravens.

La Canfora said the league won’t decide on which pick to take away until the spring, when all of the compensatory picks are sent.

The report says while many thought it was just a threat, they will, in fact, lose a pick. If the tie-breaker of total points is used against the Ravens, it could be higher. La Canfora said either, the Steelers “will face draft-pick compensation. It’s not an either/or situation.”
