The NFL unveiled its fines for hits from Week 17 today, and surprisingly, only one player from the Browns-Steelers game received a penalty. And of course, it was a Brown. Cleveland defensive tackle Phil Taylor was the one in trouble, because of his unnecessary roughness forearm that concussed Pittsburgh offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum away from the play. He was fined $7,875 for the play. It’s the second fine of his career, along with his $7,500 penalty for hitting Chad Henne in a Sept. 25, 2011 game. Notably, there were no other fines assessed to other players, such as Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison, offensive lineman Doug Legursky, or Browns defensive tackles Billy Winn and Ahtyba Rubin. The game turned ugly after Legursky dived into the legs of Craig Robertson after a second-quarter play. [Related: A new coaching staff could mean a change to a 3-4 defense. Are the Browns ready for that?]
