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.

3. Jets defensive end Leonard Williams $43,449 total between two fines for unnecessary roughness ($10,026), unsportsmanlike conduct (which led to his ejection and a $13,369 fine), and roughing the passer ($20,054), per Pelissero.
