ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Monday that the NFL would likely not suspended Bengals corner Adam “Pacman” Jones for slamming Amari Cooper’s head into his helmet, but what was expected was a fine, and he will be losing $35,000 for it.
Adam Jones says he got his fine letter today. Was for "hitting defenseless player." Slapped with a $35,000 fine. Planning on appealing.

Cooper didn’t think he shouldn’t be suspended, and he he ended up getting his wish as Cooper said “Things like that happen” when you’re playing football.
Jones described the incident on his Instagram page.
So at the end of this all, the Bengals will have Jones, and the Raiders will have Cooper. So it ends up working very well for both sides.
Jones will appeal the fine.
