Jets' Nelson says Pacman Jones threatened him

Although Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones allegedly threatened New York Jets wide receiver David Nelson on Sunday, Nelson doesn't think Jones was serious.

"It was in the battle of the game, it was never repeated, he didn't say it again," Nelson told New York reporters. "At the end of the game, he didn't come up to me and say anything, either. It was just one of those things where I guess he was extremely frustrated or extremely irritated at one point in the game and just said it in the heat of the game. I didn't take it anything further than that one play."

The New York Daily News reported that Jones told Nelson he was "going to find out where you live and come and get you."

During a conference call, Nelson said that accurate.

"I wouldn't say it was a threat," Nelson said. "I'm not going to say that he threatened me or anything like that. 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."

Meanwhile, Jones told the Bengals' website that Jets coach Rex Ryan told him to shut up.

"Sometimes you have conversations with guys and all that stuff, but I don't recall having it," Ryan said. "I've always liked him. Again, I guess it's a possibility, but I just don't remember it."
