    Ndamukong Suh's agents are gathering relevant information for their appeal of the Detroit Lions defensive tackle's $100,000 fine, but the basis of their argument, at this point, is that the amount is excessive, Ed Werder of ESPN reports citing league sources.

    The NFL has a system based on escalating discipline. Suh's previous fine was $30,000 for kicking Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin area. Now, the cost for his illegal block on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan is $100,000 -- the largest fine in NFL history without a suspension involving the loss of game checks.

    Suh, who on Wednesday said his representatives are handling the appeal, wouldn't discuss whether he thought the fine was fair.

    "That's not my decision," he said. "I don't really have an opinion on it."
