Ward calls NFL Fine "Ridiculous"

(WOIO) - Browns safety T.J. Ward called his $25,000 fine "ridiculous" on Wednesday, insisting that replays showed he didn't touch any part of Cowboys WR Kevin Ogletree's head.

"I think it was completely legal," Ward said.  "I aimed for his chest(on Sunday).  I hit him in the chest.  He was falling forward.  No part of my helmet hit his helmet.  No part of my shoulder pad hit his helmet.  If it did hit any part, it was probably the after effect or the end of the hit.  I think it was just a blown call and blown punishment."

Ward will appeal the fine.
