Jamal Adams Tackles Patriots Mascot During Pro Bowl Competition; Sends Him To Hospital

Jets defensive back Jamal Adams had some fun by delivering Patriots’ mascot Pat Patriot at the Pro Bowl festivities Wednesday. It was a real hit, and the person in the costume played it off like everything was okay.

Although Pat Patriot seemed fine in the moment, Adams claimed that his tackle had sent that poor man to the hospital.

Via ESPN’s Michael DiRocco:

“He [the mascot] was running around and everybody was booing him, so I said, ‘You know what? Let me go tackle him,’” Adams said. “I didn’t hit him that hard, man. All jokes aside, I didn’t hit him that hard. I don’t know what’s really going on, but they did tell me he’s in the hospital. My intention was never to hurt him. it was all about just a joke but I definitely want to check on him and make sure everything is good. At the end of the day we were out here just having fun and it wasn’t nothing intentionally to try to hurt the guy.”

Poor guy. Only Patriots fans feel sentimental about the situation, while everybody else got a thrill out of it.
