According to USA TODAY Sports, the NFL has decided not to fine Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams for shoving an official during last week’s Super Bowl. What was even more shocking is that Williams wasn’t ejected from the game. In an email to USA TODAY Sports on Saturday, AFC spokesman Corry Rush said the league did not fine Williams for pushing head linesman Steve Stelljes out of the way as he got up after being taken to the ground during a scrum with a few San Francisco 49ers players. Rush didn’t specify why Williams escaped any penalties, but considering his contact was much more violent than when Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton bumped an official this season (an act that resulted in a $21,000 fine), it’s clear the league took intent into consideration. “It was a situation where I didn’t see who the heck I pushed. Those guys kicked my helmet off, took my helmet off man, it’s just a part of the process. Whatever,” Williams said. “It’s a reaction. You see teammates out there getting hit late, guys pulling guys after the whistle. My helmet came off, I couldn’t barely see, and I just reacted. It is what it is.”   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
