Levi makes lame excuses

Bengals tackle Levi Jones’ has finally spoken to the media regarding his street brawl with Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter at a Vegas casino last month. Jones, still sporting facial wounds from the altercation, told a Cincinnati newspaper that he was jumped by six other men in Porter’s entourage before Porter hit him.

"[Porter] got my attention from the front and wouldn't get near me until the six guys jumped me from behind, [then] he took part," said Jones. "What started everything was the dude hit me from behind. From then on, I had to protect myself. I was attacked by seven guys. I don't know what man is going to withstand that, especially with an NFL player involved."

I feel sorry for Levi. Being the “nice” Bengal doesn’t win you friends in the locker room. But if Levi was going to take three weeks before defending himself about how he got the shit kicked out of him, you would have thought he could have come up with a better story than that. Like how he accidentally wound up in the middle of a Royal Rumble and Hacksaw Jim Duggan clubbed him in the face with a 2x4 while the Iron Sheik held him in the camel clutch.
