Tomlin: Harrison may have to change tackling technique

After receiving his fourth fine of the season - a tab that has now reached $125,000 - Steelers linebacker James Harrison is now faced with a decision: Continue to use his hyper-aggressive style and risk further fines and/or a suspension, or change.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin suggests Harrison ought to choose the latter.

"Obviously, he does, because the league doesn't agree with him," Tomlin said, per Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Harrison, who was fined $75,000 earlier in the season for illegal hits in a game against the Browns, was fined $25,000 for a late hit against Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in Sunday's overtime win in Buffalo.

Harrison was fined the previous week for a sack against Oakland's Jason Campbell after the defensive end landed with his full weight on the quarterback.
