Especially Adam "Pacman" Jones'.
While making the rounds at Super Bowl 50, Brown told ESPN's First Take that Vontaze Burfict's helmet shot on him in the final minute of the Pittsburgh Steelers' 18-16 playoff victory in Cincinnati merited the three-game suspension he received from the NFL because Burfict could have pulled up.
He also called Jones' accusations that Brown faked a concussion -- which led to Brown missing the Steelers' divisional playoff loss at Denver -- "horrible." Brown said he didn't wink at Jones after leaving the game with 22 seconds left as Jones alleged. Brown was attempting to catch an over-the-middle pass from Ben Roethlisberger, who took the snap from the Bengals' 47-yard line on first-and-10. Burfict's helmet smashed into Brown's after the play was over.
"I don't know who even gave him a platform to come say something," Brown told the show about Jones. "I didn't have even one reaction [on the field]. I didn't recall the hit until I actually got to the sideline. For him to say that was just disheartening. I'm a true professional. I play the game how it's supposed to be played. Those guys lost the game. They are going to make every excuse to make it seem like it wasn't his fault."
Jones told The Dan Patrick Show after the Bengals' loss that for a player like Brown to get knocked out, "you're not going to be able to wink" directly at Jones, who was flagged 15 yards for pushing Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter shortly after Burfict's hit. Burfict and Jones gave the Steelers 30 extra yards to set up a game-winning field goal.
Jones later apologized to Brown on Instagram after the receiver's absence in Denver confirmed the concussion's severity. Brown told NFL.com in a separate interview this week that Jones also texted him, but Brown isn't having it, saying, "I was really upset."
As for Burfict's hit, Brown called it "for sure" dirty. After 136 catches in the 2015 regular season, Brown said he believes players don't want to stop him anymore.
"They just want to take me out of the game," Brown said.
The Bengals and Steelers are set to play at least twice in 2016-17.
Brown has been cleared of his concussion and has started training. Brown's father, Eddie, told ESPN that Brown will spend the early portion of the offseason breaking down each route from the previous year.
Brown is up for the Castrol Edge Clutch Performer of the Year award at Saturday night's NFL Honors.
