Tomlin calls meeting with Goodell 'productive'

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin termed his bye week meeting with NFL commisssioner Roger Goodell as "productive," as he and team president Art Rooney II went to New York for the meeting.

Addressed in the meeting were fines levied against some Steelers players for hits the team felt fell within the rules of the game and guidelines for safety.

"We exchanged some ideas and I think the meeting was born out of a conversation with Art and the commissioner," Tomlin told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "They thought it would be productive for all of us to sit down and talk. It (was) good bye-week stuff."

At issue was safety Ryan Clark's hit on Baltimore Ravens tight end Ed Dickson, which drew the Steelers defensive back a $40,000 fine.
