Jamal Adams Calls Out NFL in NSFW Tweet After Getting Fined for Hard Hit on Baker Mayfield

Jamal Adams calls out the NFL after getting fined for hit on Baker Mayfield on Monday.

New York Jets safety Jamal Adams has been in the news for the past couple of days. From being benched during Monday night's game against the Cleveland Browns, to supposedly unfollowing the Jets on Instagram, Adams has been in the spotlight in the Big Apple.

On Wednesday night, Adams voiced his displeasure with the NFL on Twitter, after learning he was fined $21,000 for a questionable roughing the passer penalty on Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

As you see in the video provided, Mayfield let go of the ball less than a second before Adams made contact with him, despite the intensity with which the star safety leveled the Browns QB.

Adams also declared that he would continue to play with that same fire every week, so don't expect him to back down when in the face of an opposing quarterback. If he draws a 15-yard penalty and another $21,000 fine, so be it.

Adams is the Jets' leader on defense and he's one of the most passionate players in the game. It seemed that he got a bit carried away during Monday's loss to Cleveland, and the league clearly wasn't fond of his hit on Mayfield.
