A day later, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew would like to revise and extend his 140-character remarks about Jay Cutler’s toughness.
In a series of Twitter messages, Jones-Drew questioned why Cutler couldn’t tough it out and play through a knee injury in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.
Jones-Drew now tells the Associated Press that he was just having a little fun on Twitter and wasn’t intending to bash Cutler. He also says he received death threats with people who were upset about his tweets.
And Jones-Drew tweeted on Monday evening, “I was not taking a shot at Jay Cutler.”
So apparently when Jones-Drew tweeted, “All I’m saying is that he can finish the game on a hurt knee. . . . I played the whole season on one,” that wasn’t a shot at Cutler.
