It’s a difficult day for most Alabama fans, but more so for those who work with Clemson fans. Former Alabama receiver Julio Jones learned that first hand.
Second-year standout linebacker Vic Beasley was a Falcons first-round pick out of Clemson in 2015. With the Falcons gearing up for their home playoff game against Seattle on Saturday, Beasley had a little fun with his teammate as he basked in victory.
According to reporters including WSB’s Zach Klein, Beasley called Jones immediately after the game ended. Unsurprisingly, Jones did not answer.
Vic Beasley said he went to sleep around 3am & thought about running around neighborhood after Clemson win. Called Julio.. No pick up? pic.twitter.com/votqNgnbEx

Beasley didn’t let it go there, though.
Beasley also brought in Clemson gear for Jones to wear on Tuesday.
