The NFL will punish teams next season if their players commit multiple flagrant hits that result in fines.

The punishment will be financial, although league vice president Adolpho Birch said Tuesday he didn’t rule out commissioner Roger Goodell applying further sanctions such as stripping clubs of draft choices.

Citing the “notion of club accountability,” Birch said details such as the amount of the fines against clubs, or how many player fines would trigger punishment, have not been determined.
