Jones claims Brown faked injury, deserves 'Grammy'


Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam 'Pacman' Jones has accused Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown of faking injury in Saturday's AFC wildcard playoff clash.

The Steelers survived a fourth-quarter comeback to secure a dramatic 18-16 win at Paul Brown Stadium, albeit in controversial fashion.

A hit on Brown from Vontaze Burfict saw the latter receive a 15-yard penalty for unnecessary roughness with 22 seconds remaining.

As Steelers personnel came onto the field to check on Brown, Jones got into a confrontation with linebackers coach Joey Porter, drawing a flag of his own. The penalties set up the Steelers for a 35-yard game-winning field goal, eliminating the Bengals from the playoffs.

After the game, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Brown suffered a concussion as a result of the hit. 

Yet in an appearance on the Dan Patrick Show, Jones said: "Man, Antonio Brown was not hurt. I know he was faking.

"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?

"I think he needs a Grammy award for that one."

Jones also claimed he asked Brown "Are you OK?" and the Steelers wideout winked at him at the end of the game.

"I know if you just got knocked out you ain't gonna be able to wink," added Jones.
