denied early return to the Titans
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell
denies suspended Adam "Pacman" Jones early return to the league.
Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones will sit out his entire
suspension, was the decision of commissioner Roger Goodell on
Tuesday. Pacman Jones will be eligible to return to the NFL
after the Titians' season has ended and that includes playoffs.
Jones was suspended in April of 2007 for violating the NFL
personal conduct policy by raking five arrests in less than two
years. Earlier last week Pacman Jones met with Goodell to plead
for an early return, but the commissioner wasn't impress with
the cornerback's "community service" and denied Jones an early
return. "He will be eligible to begin working out at the
Titans' facility following the conclusion of the team's season,"
was the NFL's official statement.
Adam "Packman" Jones, who was drafted by
the Titans in 2005, had a brief gig in pro wrestling during his
suspension, but the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling opted out to
extend his contract after the Tennessee Titans got an injunction
that limited his physical contact to prevent any injuries. The
Titans said they have expected the suspension to remain and have
taken measures to continue the season without him.
