The win over the Bills last week proved quite costly for Julian Edelman -- to his wallet.

Edelman was fined a total of $63,504 for three different penalties in the game. It broke down to: $10,026 for unnecessary roughness and $26,739 twice for unnecessary roughness. This is quite a bit of money considering his game paycheck, including active roster bonus, is $122,200, according to The Action Network's Darren Rovell.

The Patriots wide receiver finished the game with six catches for 70 yards and a touchdown.

He can earn some of that money back Sunday with two touchdowns, as that would give him $500,000 for recording more than 70 receptions and seven or more touchdowns on the year as part of incentives in his contract. Right now, he has 69 catches and five touchdowns.
