Terrelle Pryor on Adam Jones calling him garbage: ‘It was an accurate statement’

By Michael Dixon

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones got plenty of attention for his post-game rant against Cleveland Browns receiver Terrelle Pryor on Sunday.

Jones’ coach, Marvin Lewis, didn’t enjoy the rant, in which Jones repeatedly called Pryor “garbage.” But the receiver couldn’t disagree with what Jones said about him.

Cleveland is an offensively inept team. With that, it’s sometimes hard to assess blame to a player for not having a good statistical game. Still, Pryor’s statistical output was quite poor in Week 14’s 23-10 loss. He caught only one pass for three yards.

In Pryor’s defense, the Browns didn’t have much of a passing attack on Sunday, at all. Gary Barnidge and Corey Coleman led the team in receptions, with each hauling in three passes for 27 and 26 yards, respectively. No other Cleveland player caught more than one pass.

On the season, Pryor has caught 63 passes for 858 yards and four touchdowns.
