Mike Tomlin fined $100K

Mike Tomlin said he didn't interfere with Jacoby Jones' kickoff return on purpose, but the NFL isn't letting him get away with it regardless. The league fined Tomlin $100,000 on Wednesday, one of the heftiest fines ever levied on an NFL head coach. Tomlin avoided suspension, but his line treading may come at a further cost to the Steelers -- the league is still considering whether the Steelers should lose out on draft picks next year. All that, and the Steelers still lost.
