Titans’ Vrabel isn’t pleased with Byard’s Cowboys star celebration

Tennessee Titans safety Kevin Byard channeled his inner Terrell Owens on Monday, posing on the Dallas Cowboys' star after intercepting a pass from Dak Prescott.

While Byard's teammates joined him at midfield, seemingly enjoying the celebration, head coach Mike Vrabel wasn't happy with his star defender's actions.

"That's not what we want as an organization," Vrabel told reporters Tuesday, according to Pro Football Talk's Charean Williams. "That's not what I want as a head coach. ... I get that there are things that cross the line between whistles. Once the whistle blows, celebrate with a teammate. Find somebody else in a Titans uniform. Find a coach. Celebrate with them. But we don't need to do that. That's not what we want to do.

"I talked to Kevin this morning. I'll talk to the team again tomorrow. That goes for a lot of guys. That's not what I want. If that's what they want, then we see it very differently."

Though Byard wasn't penalized for the celebration, the NFL will review it for a possible fine, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. According to the player policy manual, "stomping on a team logo" is an act that can be penalized.
