Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said there have been too many penalties on special teams this season and issued a warning Tuesday, Oct. 23, to repeat offenders.

Tomlin said he also did not want to add Vick to the mix, especially considering QB Ben Roethlisberger was dealing with a lawsuit. Tomlin felt it would have been a bad idea.
