Flozell Adams fined $12,500 for trip against Tuck

Dallas Cowboys OT Flozell Adams was fined $12,500 by the NFL for tripping Giants DE Justin Tuck Sunday night during the Giants 33-31 win, according to the Dallas Morning News. Adams had been fined $5,000 the week before when he “unnecessarily struck his opponent in the head” in a game against Tampa Bay.

I never really realized that Adams was this kind of player. Hate to see any players get hurt by stupidity so I guess the fine was justified.

Is Adams the dirtiest player in the Beast?

Cowboys left tackle Flozell Adams has been fined for the second consecutive week, this time for $12,500 for a tripping penalty late in the first half and an unnecessary kick in the direction of Osi Umenyiora in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's game. NFL spokesman Randall Liu confirmed the fine to the Beast earlier this afternoon.

Justin Tuck, who injured his shoulder after being tripped by Adams, called the play "bush league" and several of his teammates agreed. On Wednesday, coach Tom Coughlin called the play a "flagrant foul."

I was amazed to see the statistic on television Sunday night that Adams had been called for 27 penalties since 2007. That's more than anyone else in the NFL during that time period. I can remember a time when Adams was master of the false start, but now he's upped the ante with an increasing number of 15-yard violations.

Sometimes you see older players start doing things to compensate for their declining skills. I think we're seeing that with Adams. And if we took a poll right now around the NFC East, I think Adams would be voted the division's dirtiest player. What do you guys think?
