New England Patriots defensive end Deatrich Wise had to hand over a check to the National Football League after an unnecessary roughness penalty against the Dallas Cowboys during a Week 6 game.

Wise was fined $20,600 for his horse-collar tackle during the second quarter of last Sunday’s game at Gillette Stadium, per ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss. Wise signed a four-year contract worth up to $30 million with $10 million guaranteed this offseason.

The fine comes after Wise was called for a 12-yard penalty on Dallas running back Tony Pollard. It came during a nine-play, 40-yard possession for the visiting Cowboys at the beginning of the second quarter.

Wise was one of four players to be fined from the aforementioned Week 6 game, each of the other three being members of the Cowboys.

Dallas wideout CeeDee Lamb was fined $10,300 for taunting after his game-winning touchdown. Cornerback Trevon Diggs and offensive lineman Connor Williams were each fined as well.
