Jamal Adams absolutely tears into NFL after receiving fine for hit on Baker Mayfield
On Monday Night Football, New York Jets S Jamal Adams was flagged for a late hit on Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield.
On Wednesday, it was announced that Adams, a former LSU star, had been fined $21,000 for the hit, and let’s just say he was not happy with the NFL’s decision.
As you can see below, he took to Twitter to call out the league in a profanity-laced tirade:
This league is a damn joke! I just got fined $21k for this hit, I signed up to play football not two hand touch. Bullshit! I don’t give a damn about these soft rules protecting QBs. Im gonna play MY brand of football everytime I step on the field. SMH pic.twitter.com/SKlTmBBMf0

Flagging Adams for the hit is one thing, but the league taking away money from him for a play that didn’t seem too aggressive is a different story.
Adams is clearly upset right now, so we’ll see if he continues to play aggressively or if he tones it down a bit in the future.
