NY Jets Safety Jamal Adams Calls NFL 'a Damn Joke' Over $21K Fine for Hitting Baker Mayfield

Jamal Adams took to Twitter to blast the NFL for fining him $21,506.

The fine was handed out due to Adams' hit of Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield during Monday night's Jets-Browns game. Adams took to Twitter to express his disproval of the roughing the passer penalty and the league.

"This league is a damn joke! I just got fined $21k for this hit, I signed up to play football not two hand touch," Adams wrote in the tweet, which featured a clip of the play in question. "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." 

"I thought he was getting fired up pretty good, and I clicked over [to the defensive coaches] and I was like, 'Hey, we need to be careful here,'" Jets coach Adam Gase said when talking about benching Adams in the fourth quarter. "I was worried that something bad was going to happen, we need him for the next week. They were smart and they pulled him off. I said, 'Just calm him down,' and then we were off the field."

The Browns won the game. The final score was 23-3.
