T.O. Tweet: Faces Possible Fine

CINCINNATI (AP) - A message on Terrell Owens' Twitter feed violates the NFL's rules against using social media before games.

 A post on his Twitter account noted that a fan wearing his jersey at the Bengals' game against Tampa Bay on Sunday would get a football signed by him and Chad Ochocinco.

The message was posted an hour before kickoff, violating the NFL's social media policy that prohibits posts 90 minutes before a game.

Owens was on the field shortly after the message was posted. Even if someone posted it on his behalf, it would violate the league's rules.

Ochocinco was fined $25,000 by the league for tweeting before and during a preseason game against Philadelphia in August. He was the first player fined for violating the year-old policy.
