Commissioner Roger Goodell notified Adams of the fine
Monday. League spokesman Greg Aiello said it is for conduct detrimental to the
NFL. Adams was seen making the gesture while in his luxury suite and again on
the field after Sunday’s 41-17 victory.
The 86-year-old Adams issued an apology a couple of hours
later, saying he got caught up in the excitement.
Goodell was at the game, after having breakfast with
Adams. The league said that Goodell left Adams’ suite at the end of the third
quarter and spent the fourth quarter sitting with fans in the end zone before
leaving the stadium.
