The league's new collective bargaining agreement requires at least two interior offensive linemen to be wired for sound to enhance game audio, according to the report.

The six-time Pro Bowler said Tuesday he took off the mic because it was jabbing him in the neck, according to the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN).

The 14-year veteran out of Harvard plans to appeal the fine.

"I got my sixth kid on the way. I need all my money for diapers and Cheerios," Birk joked, according to MASN.
