New York Jets safety Jamal Adams has had a rough couple of days. On top of two embarrassing losses to start the season, he got notified that he's being fined $21,000 for a rough hit on Baker Mayfield this past week.

Adams must have reached his breaking point. Yesterday he took to Twitter in an expletive-filled message for the NFL.

But after taking a few hours to calm down and collect himself, Adams realized he may have crossed a line. Not with the NFL for calling them out for their rules, but for swearing on social media. Adams today revealed that he found out from his mother that she was not happy to see him cursing in public.

"My mother told me to calm down, she was upset with me that I was cursing last night on social media"

Adams expressed frustration with having to lose the money and how it's hard to hit quarterbacks with the current rules.

The former LSU safety made his name as one of the hardest-hitting players in football. He is in his third NFL season after earning Pro Bowl and Second-Team All-Pro honors last year.

Adams was voted a team captain for the 2019 season, but is a part of a struggling defense early this year.
