Julian Edelman‘s physical play, deemed unnecessary by officials, has cost him more than a few bucks.
The NFL fined Edelman a total of $63,504 for three separate plays in Sunday’s win over the Buffalo Bills, all for unnecessary roughness, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. The three individual fines of $10,026, $26,739 and $26,739 make up the total.
Oddly enough, Edelman was also fined $26,739 in November for an unnecessary roughness penalty incurred in New England’s first meeting with Buffalo.
