Jets’ Jamal Adams says officials apologized for penalty, but he was fined anyway

CLOSE SportsPulse: Like the Patriots and Cowboys, Lorenzo has been perfect through two weeks with his picks Follow along and win some money in Week 3. USA TODAYFLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Jets safety Jamal Adams is still upset about being fined for his Monday night hit on Baker Mayfield And, apparently, he wasn’t the only one who thought the hit was clean.  Adams claimed Thursday that after the Jets’ 23-3 loss to the Browns, the officiating crew apologized to the Jets’ coaching staff for the first-quarter roughing the passer penalty  “What’s funny is that after the game, those guys came to the coaching staff [and] apologized for that call,” Adams said “But at the same time, those guys have a tough situation . as far as calling certain calls So it’s very tough for me to get mad at them, because they have a tough job too.” Apparently, the league office did not see it the same way, fining him $21,056 for the penalty And Adams did not have a tough time getting mad about that, ripping the league as “a damn joke” on social media late Wednesday night FacebookTwitterGoogle+LinkedInNFL power rankings: Week 2 Fullscreen Posted!A link has been posted to your Facebook feed 32.
