Patriots linebacker Matthew Judon successfully appealed his $10,300 fine for unnecessary roughness in Week 1, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.

The full fine was rescinded, but the reason it was rescinded was not specified.

Judon was penalized after a scrum in the Dolphins’ bench area following a Miami punt in the third quarter.

Judon has 32 tackles, eight sacks and 14 quarterback hits in eight games this season. His career high in sacks was 9.5 in 2019.

He is in his first season with the Patriots after five seasons in Baltimore.

  1. Judon is a Beast. Best of luck to you! I will always remember the hat trick. 3 back to back to back sacks against the Raiders among more game wrecking plays. I wish the Ravens kept him. But, not bad for a 5th rounder out Grand Valley State!

  2. Players should be able to fine the league for big plays taken away from defenders. It is costing them money.
