Davante Adams officially became a member of the Raiders this week when he got charged with a crime.
The Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver was charged with a city ordinance violation stemming from the Monday Night Football incident in which he pushed a photographer after the loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Green Bay Packers star and Adams’ former QB Aaron Rodgers weighed in on the situation on Wednesday, admitting he was surprised by the incident.
“I was surprised. I was definitely surprised,” Rodgers said Wednesday, per The Athletic’s Matt Schneidman. “I love Davante. I reached out to him after the game. I hadn’t seen the clip yet, but yeah, I was surprised.”
He was then asked whether he was more caught off guard by the fact that Adams shoved the cameraman or that the receiver was being charged for it.
“More the charge.”
Shortly after Adams collided with a teammate on fourth down in the 4th quarter, Adams was seen walking off the field in frustration. Before entering the tunnel, a cameraman walked in his path, and Adams pushed him to the ground.
The cameraman filed a police report and Adams was charged with a city ordinance violation and could face a $250-$1,000 fine, as well as up to 180 days in jail.
Davante Adams and Aaron Rodgers were teammates for eight seasons in Green Bay.
