Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams has dominated the football headlines over the last 24 hours, and it’s not because of his play on the field.
After the Raiders’ heartbreaking 30-29 road loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Adams was seen shoving a cameraman to the ground as he exited the field. The cameraman filed a police report and was treated for non-life threatening injuries at a hospital, per NFL.com.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that Adams could even be suspended for his actions.
Regardless of whether Adams gets suspended or not, the Raiders are obviously not going to cut or trade their top receiver. The franchise surrendered 2022 first and second-round picks to acquire him from the Green Bay Packers in the offseason, and Adams quickly agreed to a five-year extension worth $141.25 million.
Nonetheless, the incident involving Adams and the cameraman sparked some hilarious tweets from the NFL Twitter world, with some even pondering the idea that the Raiders will move on from the future Hall of Famer.
After the incident, Adams took to Twitter and offered an apology towards the cameraman, stating that he “felt horrible immediately.”
Though Adams has been a productive player in the Raiders offense (29 receptions for 414 yards and five touchdowns), the team is off to a frustrating 1-4 start on the year. Last year, the Raiders finished 10-7 and made the playoffs with interim head coach Rich Bisaccia.
The Adams trade, coupled with the free agent signing of superstar pass rusher Chandler Jones, only elevated expectations in Sin City. But the Raiders’ Week 5 loss to the Chiefs has them sitting in the AFC basement along with the 1-4 Pittsburgh Steelers.
The slumping Raiders are on their bye week. They’ll return to the field next week for a home tilt against the Houston Texans.
