Adam Jones To Appeal $35,000 Fine For Cooper Hit

Sep 16, 2015 1:50 PM

Adam Jones has received a $35,000 fine from the NFL for slamming Amari Cooper's head into his helmet in Week 1.

Jones said he will appeal the fine, given for hitting a defenseless player.

"It's way too much," Jones said Wednesday, adding, "$35,000 is a lot of money for a guy out playing football. But it is what it is.

"I'll appeal and if it gets appealed, hey [good]. If it doesn't, I guess I donated to somebody's college fund this year."

NFL Won't Suspend Adam Jones For Slamming Amari Cooper's Head

Sep 14, 2015 12:33 PM

Adam Jones will likely be fined for slamming the head of Amari Cooper into his helmet, but won't receive a suspension.

Asked if he anticipated a fine or suspension, he simply replied: "No."

Officials didn't see the incident during the game.

"Whatever you saw happen, that's what happened," Jones said. "I'm just here to play football. I don't back down from anybody and I'm not out here trying to start anything. I'm just out here playing football."

"I mean, it's football," Cooper said. "It's a physical game, so you kind of expect it."

Bengals Believe A.J. McCarron Could Become NFL Starter

Jun 21, 2015 9:00 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals are highly impressed by the development of A.J. McCarron.

Cincinnati's coaching staff believes McCarron is "fully capable of becoming a starting-quality player," according to NFL Media's Albert Breer.

Although McCarron is no threat to Andy Dalton's QB1 job this summer, his development could lead to a shorter leash should the starter continue to struggle in primetime and playoff games.

Dalton's six-year, $96 million contract is essentially a year-to-year proposal.

Dorial Green-Beckham Visits 49ers, Bengals

Apr 17, 2015 10:29 PM

Dorial Green-Beckham has had visits this week with the Cincinnati Bengals and San Francisco 49ers.

Green-Beckham has drawn comparisons to Calvin Johnson and Julio Jones, but he's had issues off the field.

Back in 2014, Green-Beckham was dismissed from Missouri after being the subject of a burglary and assault investigation by police in which he allegedly pushed a female down some stairs during the incident. He didn't face charges from the incident but did wind up transferring to Oklahoma, where he spent an entire season on the practice squad before declaring early for the draft.

The 49ers own the 15th overall pick.
