Patriots Mascot Wasn't Hospitalized After Jamal Adams Tackle, Report Says

The Jets defensive back got exhausted of the Patriots mascot flaunting the team's Super Bowl rings at Pro Bowl practice on Wednesday and chose to do something about it.

If you thought the offseason would cool down tensions between the New York Jets and New England Patriots, you thought wrong.

After telling the crowd of fans who had been booing Pat Patriot he was going to "knock this mascot out", Adams did just that. "The NFL is calling my phone, blowing me up, saying that I put him in the hospital so I gotta go check on him, make sure he's OK", Adams said. Adams delivered a form tackle, knocking the mascot to the ground in what appeared to be a pretty hysterical encounter, because everyone was fine. "All jokes aside, I didn't hit him that hard. but they did tell me he's in the hospital". "At the end of the day, we were out here just having fun, and it wasn't nothing intentional to try to hurt the guy".

He later posted footage of the hit, joking: "This one is for every Patriots hater out there!"

"They're not happy with me right now". Make sure he's OK.

Initial reports suggested the man inside the mascot suit went to the hospital following the hit.

Adams said he does not regret tackling Pat Patriot, but he insists it was only a joke.

Pat Patriot was back at work at the Pro Bowl on Thursday, according to his Twitter account.

Adams stood over the stricken mascot before casually walking away.

Adams, also a former LSU star, was one of three Dallas-area prospects taken in the first six picks of the 2017 National Football League draft.
