Pacman Jones keeps his word, apologizes to injured Steelers WR Antonio Brown

Adam "Pacman" Jones didn't back down.

The Cincinnati Bengals cornerback was pretty upset with Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown after Saturday's AFC wild card game. You see, Jones thought Brown was faking an injury when the latter took a big hit from Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict late in the fourth quarter. The hit drew a personal-foul penalty and contributed to Cincinnati losing the game.

Jones was so confident that he went on "Inside the NFL" this week and said that he would apologize to Brown and admit his error if the Steelers star missed Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. Here is the clip:

Welp, Brown was ruled out of action on Friday and Jones came through with his apology:

@antoniobrown84 I truly apologize !!!!!! That's my word !!!

Would have been better if Pacman had never implied fakery in the first place, but whatever. A mea culpa is always appreciated.
