Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones accused Antonio Brown of faking an injury in the final minute of Saturday night’s Wild Card game. While appearing on the Dan Patrick Show this morning, Jones said he knows for a fact Brown embellished his injury after linebacker Vontaze Burfict was flagged for a shot to the head. Jones himself drew a 15-yard unsportsmanlike penalty for his confrontation with an official which allowed Chris Boswell to kick a game-winning field goal.
“I know he was faking,” Jones told Patrick. “Go back and look at the play. If you go back and slow-motion the play, you tell me that Vontaze hit him in the head or did his shoulder pad barely touch him.”
Jones said Brown “deserves a Grammy” for his acting performance, which suggests he’s unfamiliar with the movie industry as a whole.
“He winked at me as he left the field,” Jones said.
Brown is currently in the NFL concussion protocol and his status for Sunday’s game against Denver is uncertain.
Jones, who took to Instagram to rant after the loss, is apparently not done telling his side of the story, no matter how unbelievable it may be.
Having players accuse other players of feigning head injuries is unlikely to please Roger Goodell and other league brass. Those associated with the Grammy Awards will take the free press how ever they can get it.
