Posted Sept. 09, 2011
Venable will appeal a $20,000 fine he received Friday for a preseason hit on Cleveland wide receiver Demetrius Williams. The fine is only $2,000 less than Venable makes per week as an undrafted rookie free agent.||||||| Venable says he hasn't seen the replay yet, but found a photo showing the hit was legal. Venable drew a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty on the play in the Sept. 1 game. If the fine holds up, Venable could be allowed to pay it back over a period of time instead of all at once.
