Pacman Jones Signs with Bengals
Troubled football star Adam “Pacman” Jones has earned another chance to resume his NFL career. The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to sign Jones to a two-year deal, allowing the cornerback to get back on the field after several off-field problems derailed his once flourishing football career.
Cincinnati and Jones appear to be a good fit, as the team is known for giving troubled stars second chances. It was speculated that Jones would sign with the Bengals after he tried out twice for the team. Despite Jones’ talent, he might have a problem getting minutes as the Bengals are heavy on the cornerback position with Johnathan Joseph and Leon Hall leading the charge.
Jones was drafted by the Tennessee Titans as the sixth-overall pick in 2005. He was considered one of the cornerstones of the Titans defense after a good showing in his first two seasons. However, he was suspended the entire 2007 season after several off-field incidents that included a number of arrests. The Dallas Cowboys signed Jones for the 2008 season in a trade with the Titans. The Cowboys released him at the end of the season, making him miss the whole of last year.
