Pacman Jones Continues Beef with New Steelers CB William Jackson III



Steelers CB William Jackson III

It’s well-noted that former Cincinnati Bengals defensive back Adam “Pacman” Jones doesn’t like the Pittsburgh Steelers. Apparently, he’s not a fan of cornerback William Jackson III, either. With Jackson now suiting up in black and gold after Tuesday’s trade, Jones took to Twitter to give his thoughts.

Jackson and Jones were teammates in Cincy for two seasons. The latter, who isn’t afraid to offer his opinions— however critical — poked fun at Jackson’s performance in a Washington win early last year.

Jackson responded soon after on Instagram, saying, “Supposed to be OG’s out here hating on these young bulls, man. When I was in Cincinnati I took yo job.”

Pacman obviously didn’t take too kindly to being replied to. He’s weighed in on a number of Jackson’s showings since then.

Jones’ post on Thursday wasn’t the first time he’d gotten on Jackson this go-round. In a viral tweet following the Commanders’ setback against Dallas last month, Pacman knocked on a Char-Broil grill and asked if Jackson was inside.

This after Jackson gave up five catches for 62 yards and a touchdown. He also caused 79 yards in penalties, one of which canceled out an interception.

During a radio appearance later that week, Jones said, “They (the Cowboys) barbecued his ass on Sunday and the temperature was at 450.”

Jackson isn’t too concerned with social media.

“Social media will have you depressed for no reason,” he said on Wednesday. “You can go home to a great life. So, I’m not really on social media. They don’t really bother me at all.”

Jackson was the Bengals’ first choice in the 2016 NFL Draft. He spent five campaigns with the Steelers’ rival before departing for the nation’s capital on a three-year pact before last season.

There’s a chance that Jackson debuts at home for the Steelers following the bye week.
