Raiders Star Davante Adams Expected To Face League Discipline For Shoving Cameraman
The Las Vegas Raiders season has not gone the way the team or its fans expected after five games to start the 2022 NFL season, and it may go from bad to worse with their newest and brightest additions to their offense. Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams is expected to face disciplinary action from the National Football League for pushing a cameraman down after the conclusion of the game against division rival Kansas City Chiefs. Adams has expressed remorse both in the locker room and on social media after the incident. ESPN’s Adam Schefter posted the incident on social media
“Sorry to the guy I pushed over after the game,” Adams said on social media. “Obviously very frustrated at the way the game ended and when he ran in front of me as I exited that was my reaction and I felt horrible immediately. That’s not me..MY APOLOGIES man hope you see this.”
The Raiders were driving down the field for a potential game-winning field goal to put the Raiders 2-3 on the season. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr hit Adams downfield for a completion that would have put the team in field goal range for kicker Daniel Carlson. However, Adams catch was ruled an incomplete pass after further review. Officials stated Adams did not have complete possession of the ball as he was tapping his left foot inbounds, and by the time he had full control he had stepped out of bounds.
On the final play, Adams and teammate Hunter Renfrow ran into one another as they were running routes which resulted in an incomplete pass and a turnover on downs. Frustration soon boiled over for the star receiver on the sideline, slamming his helmet down to the Raiders sideline. The Chiefs escaped with a 30-29 victory and improved to 4-1 on the season.
Adams later shoved a cameraman on his way back to the locker room. When speaking to reporters, Adams then expressed remorse for his actions. Adams attributed the action to being frustrated with the game’s outcome. “That was just frustration mixed with him literally running in front of me,” Adams said. “I shouldn’t have responded that way.” The receiver finished the night with three receptions for 125 yards and two touchdowns.
