According to NFL Media, which cited an unidentified source, the Jets safety won his appeal of a $21,056 fine for a late hit on Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield last month in their Week 2 matchup.

Adams had criticized the league in a profanity-laced Twitter post after he received the sanction, and apparently appeals officer Derrick Brooks agreed and decided to rescind it.

"This league is a damn joke!" Adams wrote at the time. "I just got fined $21k for this hit, I signed up to play football not two hand touch. Bull—! I don’t give a damn about these soft rules protecting QBs. Im gonna play MY brand of football everytime I step on the field. SMH."

  Baker Mayfield injury update: 'No doubt' Browns QB (hip) will play vs. Patriots “He’ll be in better shape physically and he’ll be in a better place mentally too,’’ coach Freddie Kitchens said of Mayfield.“He’ll be in better shape physically and he’ll be in a better place mentally too,’’ Kitchens told reporters Tuesday (via cleveland.com).

The 23-year-old had five total tackles against Cleveland but said in an interview he was benched late in the game.

"I tried to anticipate a play, which I anticipated wrong, and I was benched," Adams told WFAN. "It happens. I just got to continue to do my job to the best of my ability as well as help lead the guys around me. I don't really know why or what was the reason. I made the penalty, and they took me out, so I'm not upset. Well, I am upset that I wanted to finish the game, but I obviously didn't finish the game. It is what it is.

"I made a bonehead mistake. One thing about me is that I'm always going to finish the game regardless. It doesn't matter what's going on. I'm out there to hunt. That's just how I am."
