NFL fines James Harrison $75,000; Dunta Robinson $50,000
Shortly after news broke that Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather has been fined $50,000 for helmet-to-helmet hits, two of his fellow NFL headhunters have also learned that their paychecks will be docked significantly.
Steelers linebacker James Harrison has been fined $75,000 for a hit on Browns receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, while Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson has been fined $50,000 for hitting DeSean Jackson.
That’s $175,000 in fines for three players, for one afternoon of football.
According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Harrison’s fine was the biggest because he’s a repeat offender.
