This is Harrison’s third fine this season for illegal hits. The total paid due to fines now sit at $100K.
“The amount of money is becoming an issue for me,” replied Harrison when asked about the fines on Thursday.
Prior to the current fine, a hard hitting Week 6 urged the NFL to place more emphasis on head-to-head hits; DB’s Brandon Meriweather and Dunta Robinson both received $50K fines while Harrison was hit for $75K.
A suggestion for Harrison. Set aside or have your accountant reserve an extra $250K a season for illegal hits. Apparently, formed, legal tackling that does not involve leading with the head is not an option for you.
