Lions interested in Pacman Jones

 

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Adam "Pacman" Jones is getting looks from NFL teams again.



Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz said Wednesday at the NFL meetings that the Lions are gathering more information about Jones' level of commitment and how he could fit in Detroit's system. The Lions were among a few teams that worked out Jones last week in New Orleans.

"Not only did we send someone down there to work him out, but also someone to spend some time with him," Schwartz said. "I wouldn't say anything's imminent, but we're definitely interested and gathering information."

Once considered a promising star, Jones' tattered history is a big reason other teams have stayed clear.

Jones, now 26, was an elite cornerback and kick returner in his first two seasons with the Tennessee Titans. But he was suspended for the 2007 season by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for his repeated off-field incidents, including six arrests since he was drafted in 2005.

Schwartz coached Jones in 2005 and 2006, when he was the defensive coordinator for the Titans. Schwartz said he already knows Jones' talent from their history together.

"I didn't need to look at the tape," Schwartz said. "He's still young. I looked at the numbers, but when you have experience with somebody, unless there's an injury or something like that, the workout won't be the final determination. The workout was just to see what kind of conditioning he was in, I would say, from a commitment standpoint.

"I can't speak from where he's at," Schwartz added. "We know where he's at from a physical standpoint. He had a good workout. I think that where we're at is we're evaluating all our options."

The off-field incidents might be the biggest factor for Detroit and any team considering signing Jones.

Before Dallas traded for him in 2008, Jones was arrested six times and involved in 12 episodes requiring police intervention since he was drafted in the first round out of West Virginia.

He got into a scuffle with a bodyguard who was part of a team-employed security detail in October 2008, and was suspended again. The Cowboys released Jones after the season in which he averaged 4.5 yards per punt return and was spotty at cornerback. He did not play last year.

Jones was an elite, shutdown corner before Goodell suspended him.

That was four years ago, but he's only 26 and would almost certainly take a low paying, make-good contract.

Can't see why Stingmark or anyone else would be mad at the Lions for seeking smart and innovative ways to improve the team.

Just do not come away from the draft without Russell Okung.

Pacman is a cancer. He will truly flourish in the motor city nightlife.

For this alone, He shouldn't be allowed to play in the NFL again.

It's useless to try to talk intelligently about Adam Jones on the internet.

Whan I was a kid "Bubble Yum" was a popular confectionary product. Then a rumor started that it was made from spider eggs. There were people that believed it, case closed.

"Bubble Yum is made from spiders eggs, so I ain't eatin' it. Adam Jones is a thug, and them there thugs don't belong in the NFL".

Case closed.

This is what exactly I'm talking about. Second chances from WHAT? The guy has never even been convicted of anything!

Here come the cliches:

-He needs to stay out of trouble!

-Where there's smoke, there's fire!

-He's a tHUG~!

Blah, blah, blah.

There IS fire with this smoke. he's proven it. You don't stay in THAT much troble unless there is something there and he was completely remorseless from his last roubles. This is a guy to stay away from. Plain and simple.

 

And the "never convicted" argument is BS.  That would make sense if it was only a couple of offense, not repeat offense from all the way before college.  It's like those that say "never failed a drug test" when they know there is no test for the drug they are using.

I think we might all be able to agree that he may be a dumbass with bad judgment, but even guys with those characteristics will keep getting chances if they can help a team improve as long as they aren't suspended.

There is a test for crimes. It's called a "court room". If Jones had actually committed an awful crime, why hasn't he been convicted of anything?

The BS people come up with to justify their stance against Jones is staggering. Whatever, he's missed close to three years at this point. It's time for the American public to stop bullying this guy.

He sucked balls with the Cowboys.  I'm not saying he should be suspended. i'm saying he's the type of guy you need to keep out of your locker room.
