Steelers WR on Bengals: 'They want to take me out. They want to kill'

In his first public interview since suffering a concussion in the Steelers’ 18-16 playoff win over the Bengals, Pittsburgh Pro Bowl Wide Receiver Antonio Brown held nothing back talking about Vontaze Burfict and Adam Jones. 

“They want to take me out,” Brown told 93.7 The Fan. “They want to kill. They want to steal my dreams. They want to ruin me. They want to end me. We’re not going to let them. We’re going to win more.” 

Brown suffered a season-ending concussion when Vontaze Burfict’s shoulder hit Brown’s helmet on the Steelers game-winning drive. Burfict was later suspended the first three games of the 2016 season for his actions in the Bengals’ playoff loss. 

Adam Jones, who was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct following that play, accused Brown of faking his concussion after the game, but has since apologized to Brown via Instagram.

“I lost tremendous respect for [Adam Jones] when he went on record saying that I winked at him,” Brown told Pro Football Talk. “I was unconscious, I didn’t really even remember what had transpired so for him to say something like that is totally a coward, it’s idiotic.”

Brown also told 93.7 The Fan that Jones had texted him to apologize, but that he wouldn’t respond. 

Fox19 Now has reached out to a few members of the Bengals, but all have declined comment at this time.
