Report: 49ers receivers fined over Shanahan-themed shirts

The NFL has some very strict rules, and the 49ers' wide receivers reportedly found that out the hard way. 

Prior to San Francisco's Week 16 clash with the Tennessee Titans, 49ers wideouts were seen wearing Kyle Shanahan-themed T-shirts that paid homage to their coach's glory days as a University of Texas wide receiver.

Unfortunately for those receivers, the NFL didn't like it. 

"Kyle, I hope you appreciated it because it cost each one of these guys $4,722 in fines for wearing shirts made by outside companies and outside trademarks," NFL Media's Mike Garafolo said in reporting the news on "Good Morning Football." "Those guys got fined for it, but I'm sure Kyle appreciates the honor."

Talk about a buzzkill. Yikes.
