Earlier today, cornerback and return specialist Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones announced that he is retiring from the NFL.
Jones was drafted sixth-overall by the Tennessee Titans in 2005 out of University of West Virginia. He has also played with the Dallas Cowboys (2008), Cincinnati Bengals (2010-17), and Denver Broncos (2018).
He also played one season in the CFL with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2009.
Adam 'Pacman' Jones to me just now on the phone on his retirement: "I'm content. I had a hell of a run doing it. I'm at the point where I didn't feel I would be top level if I tried to play now. I'm happy and I'm looking forward to spending more time with my family and the kids."— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) May 24, 2019
The most notable early part of Jones’ career was being suspended for a full season in 2007 and part of the 2008 season for off-the-field issues.
However, his career was turned around as being an integral part of the Bengals defense for eight seasons. Jones was named to his only career First-Team All-Pro selection in 2014 and Pro Bowl selection in 2015.
‘Pacman’ wraps up his controversial, yet productive career with 507 total tackles, 17 interceptions, seven forced fumbles and eight total touchdowns.
