SAN DIEGO (AP) - The agent for cornerback Antonio Cromartie confirms that the San Diego Chargers have fined his client $2,500 for using Twitter to complain about the food at training camp.
The offending tweet apparently equated the food quality with the Chargers' failure to reach the Super Bowl in recent seasons.
Agent Gary Wichard said Tuesday that he had seen a paraphrased version of the offending tweet, and added that he is a staunch anti-tweeter.
Neither Cromartie nor any Chargers' officials were immediately available for comment.
The fine was first reported by profootballtalk.com.
