How many, 'This is peak 2020' moments will it take for that saying to go out of style? Or has it already?
Anyway, whatever's going on with former Bengals corner Adam 'Pacman' Jones and Steelers corner Joe Haden could certainly be considered a 'Peak 2020' moment.
It all started when somebody decided to send Jones a box filled with signed Haden jerseys. Thinking Haden sent him the jerseys, Jones lit them all on fire.
Somebody sent former Bengals CB Adam Jones a box of signed Steelers jerseys and he burnt them all to a crisp, “You know who Joe Haden is?” “Hell no”. 🌾👀🌾— Elise Jesse (@EliseJesseTV) August 13, 2020

In response to the video, Haden's agent Drew Rosenhaus told Pro Football Talk, "I want to clarify that Joe Haden was not involved in sending his jerseys to Adam Jones. He had no knowledge of this and was not connected to it. He had no knowledge of this and was not connected to it. Furthermore Joe has been a first class person on and off the field. We do not appreciate or condone Jones negative reaction or comments. Joe has had immaculate track record in the NFL and should not be treated this way by another member of the NFL family.”
Haden hasn't responded himself yet, so at this moment the feud remains between Jones, a box of jerseys and Rosenhaus. Sounds about right if you paid attention to Jones' playing career.
There is no love lost between Jones and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Honestly, you could say the same thing about the rest of the AFC North for that matter. Jones played on the Bengals from 2010-17 and worked up a reputation as a big-hitting defensive back who from time to time, delivered a few dirty hits alongside the notorious Vontaze Burfict.
It's an incredibly odd situation between one retired player and a vet who's never played with him. Maybe more will come out of this situation, and maybe it flames out.
One thing is for certain, though. Whoever actually sent Jones those jerseys is sweating right now.
