Davante Adams penalized with bizarre fin after countering dangerous play vs Broncos


Davante Adams is not a player who would keep his mouth shut on matters where he feels unjust. This trait of his has ensured that the league has fined Adams with $29,785 for unsportsmanlike conduct, keeping his mind his abusive language towards an official after he complained about a no-call on Justin Simmons’ hit on him.

To those who are unaware about the play – lets turn back the clock. Simmons collided with Davante Adams, with the latter suffering a huge impact on his head and neck, resulting in an incomplete pass. With the hit evidently looking illegal, no flag was thrown. This was enough to instigate Adams to lose his temper on back judge Dino Paganelli.

Although the league did determine Simmons’ hit to be illegal, no action was taken against the culprit. Who was brought in the spotlight? Perhaps a veteran who decided to take matters in his own hand. In simpler terms – Davante got the bigger fine for complaining, though, as the Broncos safety only had to pay $15,914.

Many would assume that this mentioned fine $30,000 – is just a small amount to Adams, who signed a five-year, $140 million deal with Las Vegas Raiders in the 2022 offseason.

However, it’s still bizarre that he’s given a higher fine than Simmons. It’s not the first time a player received such penalty for arguing a no-call, though, since it already happened to DK Metcalf in Week 10.

That being said, this won’t make Davante happy at all. But, with this incident and game all over, Adams will now be focused on leading his side in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks.
