Davante Adams wasn’t able to contain his frustration following the Raiders’ narrow loss Monday night, and it will cost the superstar wide receiver.
Adams shoved a media member to the ground after Las Vegas suffered a 30-29 defeat at the hands of the Chiefs in Kansas City. The Raiders, who signed Adams to a five-year, $141.25 million deal after trading for him over the offseason, now sit at 1-4 on the season as they head into their Week 6 bye.
Not long after the primetime matchup between AFC West rivals concluded, Adams issued an apology for his actions via Twitter.
“Sorry to the guy I pushed over after the game,” Adams tweeted. “Obviously very frustrated at the way the game ended and when he ran infront of me as I exited that was my reaction and I felt horrible immediately. Thats not me..MY APOLOGIES man hope you see this.”
Unfortunately for Adams, a quick apology probably won’t prevent him from facing consequences. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero on Tuesday morning reported the five-time Pro Bowl selection is facing league discipline for the shove, with suspension a possibility for potential punishment.
Adams logged 29 catches for 414 yards with five touchdowns over his first five games with the Raiders.
