Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew led the charge of players ripping Bears quarterback Jay Cutler on Twitter as Cutler sat out the second half of the NFC Championship Game. Having reflected on it for several months, Jones-Drew isn’t sorry.
In an interview with NFL Network, Jones-Drew said he has no regrets about going on Twitter and saying Cutler should have finished the game despite suffering a knee injury.
“I don’t regret anything I do,” Jones-Drew said. “You think about everything you put out there. I’m not going to be one of those guys to say, ‘I shouldn’t have done it.’ Because I did it. I knew what I was doing when I tweeted it. I just didn’t know that many people were following me at the time.”
Asked if he had apologized to Cutler, Jones-Drew said he hasn’t seen Cutler but sees no reason that he would need to reach out.
“I haven’t gotten a chance to, but I wouldn’t apologize because I didn’t do anything wrong, I don’t think,” Jones-Drew said. “I didn’t commit a crime. I didn’t kill anyone or rape anyone or anything like that. I mean, I stated my opinion, and it seems like you get more backlash for that than committing a real crime in some sense. I feel like I didn’t do anything wrong, I just said what everybody else was thinking.”
