Bengals' Adam Jones on Antonio Brown: 'I know he was faking'
Bengals cornerback Adam Jones said he knows Antonio Brown was 'faking' his injury late in Saturday's playoff game.
Cincy cornerback Adam Jones went on the Dan Patrick Show Monday morning and said Steelers wideout Antonio Brown was "faking" being hurt on a hit from Vontaze Burfict late in the game that moved the ball 15 yards closer to the end zone.
"Man, Antonio Brown was not hurt. I know he was faking," Jones said. "Go back and look at the play."
Jones added that Brown winked at him as he left the field.
"He deserves a Grammy," Jones said.
(Yes it should be an Oscar. Or a Golden Globe. Anything but Grammy.)
After the play in question, Jones was involved in another penalty, flagged 15 yards for contact with an official when Steelers coach Joey Porter was on the field and allegedly inciting Jones into doing something stupid.
It's probably going to get Porter fined, but it worked.
"There’s just a lot of disrespectful things. Why is he on the field?" Jones asked Monday. "He’s not even playing? Why should he be on the field?"
Those are great questions. A Steelers coach managing to draw a 15-yard penalty on a Bengals player in the middle of the action -- Porter was apparently allowed near the group of players because he was checking on Brown's injury -- shouldn't be happening on a game deciding whether or not a team's season is going to continue.
But it did because the Bengals lost their cool and now they've got to live with it until 2016.
