Burleson was fined $10,000 by the NFL for his touchdown celebration during last week's overtime win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Burleson waved his arms in a mock Eagle, then mimicked shooting it with a rifle.

The league levied the fine because of "a violent action toward another team." Burleson said other teams have mimed the use of a firearm, plus, "It could have been a super soaker."

Not sure that appeal is going to work for Burleson. **
