The case of the Flozell Adams cheap shot has just gotten a little more strange, with Adams’ agent now claiming that Adams didn’t know the play was over when he pushed Justin Tuck in the back at the end of the first half of the Cowboys-Giants game.
“I have talked to the Cowboys and the league. The league is discussing it and we will find out tomorrow,” Adams’ agent Jordan Woy said of possible disciplinary actions. “Flo thought the play was still in action when the hit occurred.”
Left unanswered is this: Even if we stipulate that Adams really did think the play was still in action, how would that justify giving an opponent a hard shove in the back away from the play?
There seems to be a growing consensus that there is no justification for what Adams did, and that the league needs to come down hard on Adams, who has already been fined three times by the NFL this season for four personal fouls, including two in one game the first time the Cowboys played the Giants.
However, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that if the league is going to suspend Adams, it will likely announce the move today to give the Cowboys adequate practice time to prepare for his absence. So for the Cowboys, no news about Adams is good news about Adams.
