Davante Adams Issues Official Apology For Shoving Cameraman

Davante Adams, Las Vegas Raiders

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams made headlines for the wrong reasons Monday night.

The star wideout caught three passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns against the Kansas City Chiefs. But following the Raiders' one-point loss, he was caught on camera shoving a cameraman to the ground as he left the field.

Shortly after the game, as video of Adams' shove went viral, he tweeted an apology.

"Sorry to the guy I pushed over after the game. Obviously very frustrated at the way the game ended and when he ran infront of me as I exited that was my reaction and I felt horrible immediately. That's not me.. MY APOLOGIES man hope you see this." -- Davante Adams

Adams' frustration stemmed from the fact that, on the Raiders' final play of the game, a fourth down and one in the final minute, he and fellow receiver Hunter Renfrow ran into one another and fell down, leading to an incomplete pass and turnover on downs. The Raiders lost 30-29 after at one point leading the Chiefs 17-0.

The NFL has not yet announced any discipline for Adams, but it seems likely that he will face a fine and possibly a suspension. The Raiders host the Texans next week.
