MIAMI (WFLX) - Miami Dolphins player Don Jones has been fined and must take an educational training course after sending a negative tweet about the newest and probably most high profile member of the St. Louis Rams, Michael Sam.

Sam is the first openly gay player to be selected in the draft.

Don Jones, who plays safety for the Dolphins, tweeted "OMG" and "horrible".

The tweets were taken down a short time later, and Jones apologized for what he said on Sunday.

The Dolphins say he's been excused from all team activities until he completes training related to his comments.
