The Pittsburgh Steelers and the National Football League have fined wide receiver George Pickens a reported amount of over $200,000 this season, a substantial amount. 

Before Week 16, he would be publicly called out by head coach Mike Tomlin: 

"I would like him to be more professional in terms of addressing some of his shortcomings with you guys in order to further add fluidity to the process," Tomlin told the media that week. "He's not helping himself, he's not helping the process in the manner in which he has dealt with you guys. But the manner in which he deals with you guys is not necessarily the manner in which he deals with us or himself regarding acknowledging where he is or where he needs to go."

He would respond with two straight strong weeks, hauling in 11 passes for 326 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
