Jets Safety Jamal Adams Assaults Pat Patriot at the Pro Bowl
The New England Patriots just seem to bring out the worst in everyone.
Well, it wasn't exactly a formal introduction.
The encounter occurred while Adams was signing autographs and Pat Patriot was mascoting.

You can tell from the crowd reaction that they were just waiting for some random violence, specifically directed at Pat.
This may seem a tad harsh for an exhibition game, but Adams was simply giving the fans what they desperately craved.
But alas, every action has a consequence.
It appears that Patrick may have sustained some injuries from the tackle, despite what the permanent crazed grin affixed to his giant costume head would suggest.
There have been conflicting reports as to the severity of said injuries, with Adams even being told that Pat had been hospitalized.
However, someone was in that costume the next day, at least pretending to have a good time.
Meanwhile, Adams was just trying to keep it casual and avoid any potential litigation.

He can always take solace in that Pro Bowl Defensive MVP trophy.
Great win for the AFC and honored to be named Defensive MVP, big big thank you to all the fans that voted me in! pic.twitter.com/cF9tXaTDxg— Jamal Adams (@TheAdamsEra) January 28, 2019
Let's just hope this player-on-mascot crime doesn't become an epidemic.
Robin Lopez gets a pass, though.
