Davante Adams Stands To Lose $200K-plus Each Game If Suspended

The biggest NFL story dominating headlines, besides the terrible officiating, has to be surrounding Las Vegas Raiders star Davante Adams. Immediately following a frustrating end to Monday Night Football, Adams was seen “shoving” a cameraman. Since then, other video angles of the incident have been released, along with other developments. Let’s catch you up on the biggest Raiders news story going right now.

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.

The question now on everyone’s minds is what the repercussions for Adams will be as far as the NFL goes. A fine is surely going to happen, but what about a suspension? NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero set Twitter ablaze when he mentioned that a suspension could be forthcoming. As you can imagine, the reaction by Raider Nation was swift.

The price will be hefty if Adams is suspended… 

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.
