New York Jets safety Jamal Adams is not having any of this soft brand of football we’re seeing around the league.
The former first-round pick was fined $21,000 for a late hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield during Monday night’s game.
The play initially drew a questionable personal foul call against Adams.
The third-year Pro Bowler took to social media on Wednesday, absolutely blasting the NFL for the fine.
“This league is a damn joke! I just got fined $21k for this hit, I signed up to play football not two hand touch. Bull***t! I don’t give a damn about these soft rules protecting QBs,” Adams wrote. “Im gonna play MY brand of football everytime I step on the field. SMH.”
Tell us how you really feel, Mr. Adams.
This is not going to change the fine. It’s not going to change how the NFL calls similar plays.
At the very least, we know where Adams stands and how he’s going to play moving forward.
