Browns LB Chris Kirksey fined $8,268 for dirty hit on Jake Locker

That's not enough.

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Browns LB Chris Kirksey has been fined $8,268 for his cheap shot dirty hit on Jake Locker in the end zone.  The hit was four yards deep in the end zone. It should have gotten Kirksey ejected.

In my opinion, the NFL should have suspended him for a game after seeing the tape. I get that it was hard to see live, Mike Keith even talked about how tough it was to see what happened live, but the NFL had a chance to see what really happened. A fine of that amount is weak- especially for a forearm to the head.
