New England Patriots star wide receiver Julian Edelman was fined for unnecessary roughness after a controversial hit on a Buffalo Bills player last Monday night. After calling for a fair catch in the third quarter of the game, Edelman lunged forward and hit Bills cornerback Lafayette Pitts in the face mask.
Edelman faces a fine of $26,739 for the hit, according to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero.
