The New York Jets are 0-2 and things don't appear to be getting any better for the AFC East franchise.

Jamal Adams, arguably the team's best player, took to Twitter this evening to blast the NFL for a $21,000 fine.

The All-Pro safety says the NFL is fining him north of $20K for a hit on quarterback Baker Mayfield during Monday night's loss to the Cleveland Browns.

"This league is a damn joke! I just got fined $21k for this hit, I signed up to play football not two hand touch. Bullshit! I don’t give a damn about these soft rules protecting QBs. Im gonna play MY brand of football everytime I step on the field," he tweeted.

Adams included a video of the play:

Adams was given a roughing the passer penalty for the hit on Mayfield. And now he's been hit with a fine.

The Jets safety is set to face Tom Brady and the New England Patriots this weekend.

NFL referees, meanwhile, are allegedly telling players to "stay off" Brady, even when the hits are legal. We're going to guess that Adams won't be taking that advice.
