Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones got a lot of heat from folks this week after claiming Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was faking his concussion following a brutal hit from Cincy linebacker Vontaze Burfict.
Pacman said he would give Brown an apology if he didn’t play this Sunday in Denver, but insisted that wouldn’t be the case.
“Man, Antonio Brown was not hurt,” Jones said about Brown’s concussion. “I know he was faking it. Go back and look at the play. If you go back and slow-motion the play, you tell me that Vontaze [Burfict] hit him in the head. Or did his shoulder pad barely touch him?”
But on Friday, Brown was officially ruled out for this weekend’s Divisional Round Game in the Mile High City.
Many questioned whether or not Pacman’s ego would prevent him from being a man of his word, but Brown eventually did get his apology.
Sure, Jones and Burfict’s actions last weekend might have cost the Bengals their season, but at least we know Pacman isn’t that bad of a person. I’m sure this makes up for everything.
