Raiders News: Davante Adams charged with misdemeanor assault
Raiders fans continue to be shocked at just how much of a big deal one minor incident has become. As people will recall, Adams immediately apologized for the incident. At this point, some are wondering if this is just a money brag considering the news that has come out. As of the time of this publication, Adams was charged with misdemeanor assault. The photographer is claiming he suffered whiplash and a headache following a report that was released. In addition, the report states that the man could possibly have had a concussion.

Whether Adams is suspended or not will likely be the story of the week. Nevertheless, what would a suspension cost Adams? Well, according to Spotrac, No. 17 stands to lose up to $224,444 each week that he’s suspended. Not exactly chump change by any stretch. Most agree that a fine being handed down is sufficient punishment. Unfortunately, if the league is looking to make an example of Adams, they’ll do it.
