Yes, they are. The NFL sees that as lost revenue, as after the game they try to get the balls signed by key players or sell the ball as an "official game used" ball. Its unknown how much they actually fine them, as it may be in tow with an excessive celebration fine. Its total BS, MLB gives balls away, why not the NFL?

Do NFL players get fined for giving balls away to the fans and if so how much?

If a NFL player hands a ball to a fan after scoring they do not get fined by the League. However If a player throws the ball into the stands, they will get fined by the NFL. Throwing the ball into the stands consitiutes a Fan Safety/Crowd Control Violation, as is may cause a fight to break out in the stands. In January of 2013 two NFL players, Frank Gore and Michael Crabtree, were each fined $ 10,500 for throwing the ball into the stands after scoring. NO if they score on a TD then there allow to give fans balls. If Its not a TD and you give it away then yes you are fine and could be a Delay of Game. Most players keep them and give it to fans after the game if they want along with their game attire.
