PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt is known for dishing out big hits, but this time, he’s the recipient of a big hit — but the hit is being aimed at his wallet.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Watt has been fined over $10,000 for unnecessary roughness during the Steelers’ game vs. the Seahawks on Sunday Night Football.
