No flag doesn't mean no fine

The NFL fined Buccaneers safety Jordan Whitehead $26,739.  The fine was for unnecessary roughness for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

The hit came in Tampa Bay's win over Cleveland on Sunday and was not flagged.

This is all the proof you need that the NFL can and will do anything it wants, especially to their players.  This is really nothing new for the fine happy National Football League.

The NFL did say that the hit should have been flagged, but the fact that it wasn't should negate any fine.
