According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the NFL fined Thomas $30,000 for using the phone as a prop and for having a mobile device in the bench area.
For what it’s worth, Thomas might not care. He likely knew his action would spark a fine, and he set it all up well before the game anyway. It’s also worth pointing out that Horn, the man whom Thomas honored with the celebration, was touched by the gesture.
And in the end, assuming the NFL doesn’t reduce the fine upon appeal, the money Thomas will give to the league will end up going to a good cause.
