Here are the highest fines levied against players by the NFL, according to the Sporting News. The list is for straight fines for on-field conduct only, not for money lost because of suspensions. The $15,750 fine given to 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks for his hit on New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees doesn't come near to list, which begins at $100,000 and ends at $50,000.
