Jets wide receiver David Nelson confirmed Monday that Adam “Pacman” Jones made a threatening remark to him during Sunday’s game between the New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals, Matt Ehalt of ESPN New York reports.
But Nelson said he did not interpret it as an actual threat to his safety. Nelson would not say what Jones said to him, but he said the media reports about Jones’ remarks were accurate.
The New York Daily News reported that Jones told Nelson that he was “going to find out where you live and come and get you” during the Bengals’ 49-9 win over the Jets on Sunday.
“I wouldn’t say it was a threat. I’m not going to say that he threatened me or anything like that,” Nelson said on a conference call. “He did say some stuff on the field, but I wouldn’t take it as a threat.
“I’m not going to get into specifics of exactly what he said. But I can confirm I’ve read a lot of reports that are true.”
