New York Jets wide receiver David Nelson isn't sweating threats made to him by Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones on Sunday, according to Matt Ehalt of ESPN New York. Nelson said that the remarks weren't something that he takes "as a threat" and that he's heard "a lot of crazy stuff" during games in the past.
The initial report suggested that Jones told Nelson that he was going to "find out where you live and come and get you" during the Bengals' 49-9 victory on Sunday. Nelson didn't confirm exactly what Jones told him, but did say that he "read a lot of reports that are true."
It's clear Nelson believes that Jones was just frustrated or fired up in the game. Obviously, that kind of thing isn't something you like to hear, but Nelson said that he doesn't consider the incident as him being threatened, in the end.
Nelson had a solid day for the Jets, catching eight passes for 80 yards. He was about the only solid player on offense, as no other receiver broke 30 yards and no running back broke 40. Jones had an interception in the game.
