Jamal Adams might be done calling out the NFL on his social media, but he isn't done taking jabs after his recent fine by the league.
Adams was docked $21,000 by the league for his rougher the passer penalty on Baker Mayfield on Monday night, a call he publicly disagreed with on his Instagram where he said the league is a "joke."
When speaking with reporters on Thursday, Adams made sure to keep it clean (he said it was "Bull----" in the post) because his mother told him to calm down. However, he did address the play again, and confirmed that he will be appealing the fine.
He had a little fun with his answer, too.
"Yeah, most definitely," Adams said. "I mean it's crazy. It bothered me a lot because it's kinda like, 'What do you want me to do?' It was legal. Next time I might just tag him on the hip and say, 'He's it' and play tag with 'em. But I don't know what else you want me to do in that situation."
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Adams will definitely be getting that letter in the mail for the official fine after the league deemed the play the right call. On the contrary, though, Adams revealed those officials that threw the flag apologized to the Jets' coaching staff for making the call after the game.
"Well, what's funny is that after the game those [officials] came to the coaching staff and apologized for that call," Adams explained. "But, at the same time, those guys have tough situations like that 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."
If you know Adams, you won't be surprised that he said he'll "continue to play my game as long as I'm not hurting this team." That play did hurt the Jets in the moment, but normally, Adams' aggressive play is beneficial to the team.
Heading into this division rivalry against the Patriots on the road, Adams will have Tom Brady to go after in the pocket. But, after receiving his penalty and fine from the league, Adams isn't so sure he can unleash on Brady -- or any quarterback for that matter -- anymore.
"Maybe we just need to put red jerseys on quarterbacks. Just being honest," he said.
