Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was fined $15,750 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness, a punishment stemming from his crushing block on Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs.

Finley delivered a high shoulder shot to Suggs' facemask in the first quarter of the Packers' 19-17 win Sunday, upending him off his feet. An NFL spokesman said Finley "unnecessarily struck a defenseless player in the head and neck area."

"Thanks to NFL for the fine for playing football," Finley wrote on his official Twitter account.

Jason Wilde said:
GREEN BAY — Jermichael Finley will appeal the $15,750 fine the NFL levied against him Friday after the Green Bay Packers tight end leveled Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs with a block during the Packers' 19-17 victory last Sunday in Baltimore.

Finley was officially informed of the fine on Friday, he said, and that he indeed will appeal.

"I really don't care about it, but just the fact that if was a play where I was trying to do it, I'd take the fine, but I won't take it," Finley said in the locker room after practice Friday. "It was first quarter. It was a good (hit), too."

Finley later voiced his displeasure about the fine on his Twitter account.

The play came on the last play of the first quarter, when running back Johnathan Franklin was stopped for a loss on a third-and-1 toss to the right. Finley comes in motion on the play into the slot and drills Suggs, hitting Suggs in the facemask with his shoulder pad. It does appear on replay that Finley does lift upward into Suggs. The NFL, per a spokesman, fined Finley for "unnecessarily striking a defenseless player in the head and neck area."

Meanwhile, Ravens safety Matt Elam was not fined for the low hit to wide receiver Randall Cobb's leg that resulted in Cobb's fractured fibula, which will keep the Packers' leading pass-catcher out for at least eight weeks. Packers guard T.J. Lang also was not fined for his personal foul penalty in the wake of that play, when Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers angrily confronted Elam for his hit and Lang pushed him.

I'm getting more and more of a high opinion of Finley. He got how much of a bonus last off season? $8 million or something like that? He could kick ass like this every game - and I hope he does - and it wouldn't make a piss hole in the ocean compared to the money he got.

Maybe he should start taking cheap shots on the other teams' star players.

That seems to not be a problem at all, for the officials or the league.

I don't get how Suggs was "defenseless" Finley didn't come from out of nowhere, he settled in right across from him then blocked him like any other TE would probably be doing in that situation.

He's done the same thing to Jared Allen and I believe Julius Peppers. Loves that chip to help out the tackle.

Decleated! Love to see the physicality, but at the same time, you need to recognize when you down block on a defensive player like that, instead of doing that up high crap, just get your head in front and drive through. If you are heads up, then that arm game like that is kosher. At any rate, keep up the hits like that Finley. Better a fine then a yellow flag.
