NFL fines Mike Tomlin 100K “for interfering with a play in progress” and “a modification or forfeiture of draft choices will be considered” — Rich Eisen (@richeisen) December 4, 2013
In addition, because the conduct affected a play on the field, a modification or forfeiture of draft choices will be considered after the final order of the 2014 draft has been determined. Tomlin’s positioning in the white border during play should have resulted in a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct.
