Why NFL reportedly exploring disciplinary action against Seahawks star Jamal Adams?

The Seattle Seahawks are now 3-1 after securing a 24-3 victory over the New York Giants, albeit they lost one of their veteran stars, Jamal Adams, for a while as the safety sustained an injury in the match when he was kneed in the head by the opponent’s signal-caller Daniel Jones on the ninth play of the campaign.

The uncertainty of playing the upcoming games is already a setback for Jamal as he missed a couple of games of the last season and the first three of this season with a torn quad tendon. Now, the veteran is at risk of facing another huge blow as he infuriated the NFL by comitting an impatient act in the match.

NFL investigates Jamal Adams’ sideline conduct for possible punishment

After colliding with the Giants quarterback, Jamal seemed unstable while being pulled out of the field. However, a few moments later, ESPN cameras captured him yelling at one of the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultants of the league on the sideline before heading into the locker room. The No.33 was held back by Seattle’s head athletic trainer and two members of the franchise’s security staff.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the NFL might exercise disciplinary action against the 27-year-old vet due to his sideline drama of berating the concussion doctor appointed by the league and NFLPA.

Getting out of the field on the midway and not being able to play afterward, could be very disappointing for Adams, especially when a prolonged injury hit him last season. Just a few days ago, he revealed his intention of retiring after tearing his quad tendon in Week 1 of the 2022 season while mentioning all the injuries he had to fight with over the last three years.

The first-round NFL Draft pick made two tackles against the Giants before the incident. However, the misfortune is seemingly not going to leave him soon.

Jamal apologizes for outburst after concussion

Soon after the news about his potential chance of getting disciplinary action started hitting the headlines, Adams reached out on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, to apologize for his activity.

“First and foremost, I want to apologize to the OG. You did everything right when you realized I was concussed, I apologize for any negative energy I brought your way.”

The doctors are there to serve their duties and players are also expected to cooperate with them to minimize the risk of any big incident. Hence, the Seahawks vet was utterly regretful for his action and revealed he was himself at the moment while thanking doctors for showcasing patience on the spot.

“Watching the replay, I am thankful for your patience knowing I wasn’t myself in that moment. You’re a real one and you serve a great purpose that benefits the NFL and so many players. Prioritizing player’s health is essential. Much respect to you.”

Pete Carroll, Seattle’s head coach, also provided his take following the Safety’s outburst saying the footballer was frustrated about being removed from the campaign. Nevertheless, it will not be a long-term issue for Adams as Carroll said he would be fine, and said he has time still the bye week to bounce back stronger.
