Report: Steelers LB James Harrison Fined 20K For Hit On Saints QB Brees
Gerry Dulac of the Post Gazette just reported on Fox Sports Radio 970 that Steelers linebacker James Harrison incurred another $20,000 fine reportedly for the late hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees this past Sunday night. This now brings the total fines for Harrison on the year to $100,000. Harrison met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday along with Steelers director of football operations Kevin Colbert and called the meeting "semi-productive," saying he spoke his mind about the stricter enforcement of dangerous hits. Harrison's agent, Bill Parise said, "The hit on Brees was not to the head and he didn't bury him or anything."
