Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was unhappy with the way New York Jets wide receiver David Nelson played against him on Sunday. Pacman thought Nelson threw numerous cheap shots during the Bengals’ 49-9 blowout victory, one of which drew an unnecessary roughness penalty at the end of the third quarter.
“(Nelson) was playing dirty,” Jones said after the game. “He cut me like four times after the play. Thank God I took my medicine today, I guess, and I didn’t go off. Hopefully, he’ll get fined. At least three fines. There were three real cheap shots after the play.”
I doubt Nelson is going to be fined three times, but we get the point. Jones was furious. According to the NY Daily News, he was so angry that he may have crossed the line by threatening Nelson.
“I’m going to find out where you live and come and get you,” Jones reportedly told Nelson at one point during the game.
Pacman and Rex Ryan were also seen jawing at one point, and Pacman says Rex had told him to “shut the hell up.”
We’d have to see the game to know whether we agree with Pacman about Nelson playing dirty, though the officials obviously agreed on at least one play. Even if Nelson was throwing cheap shots, there’s a line you can’t cross with trash talking. Threatening someone like that would constitute crossing the line. Given Pacman’s incredibly long list of off-field issues, the last thing he should be doing is threatening to find out where someone lives.
