While I feel this thug should have been booted out of the league a long time ago, w/e happened to a suspension being a suspension? What's with this "early reinstatement" stuff?

Report: Pacman says he's done enough for early reinstatement
Associated Press
Updated: October 7, 2007, 3:38 PM ET

ATLANTA -- Suspended Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones said he's done enough to be reinstated back to the NFL early.

Jones, suspended for the 2007 season in April for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, said that he'll meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell later this month about reinstatement after 10 games. His case won't be reviewed until after the Titans' 10th game on Nov. 19.

"I think I did enough. I did pretty much everything Mr. Goodell asked me to do. So, all I can do is just wait and go back to speak with him," Jones said in an interview in Sunday's editions of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Jones said he's been using the time to restore his image. He also has two felony coercion charges pending against him in Las Vegas for a strip club fight and triple shooting on Feb. 19.

"I'm just staying to myself, taking this time out to worry about things I need to do better as a person -- whatever I got to do in the community, whatever I have to do to better my image as a person so I can get back on the field," he said Friday.

Dixie Carter, president of Total Nonstop Action wrestling, said Jones has been a "model team player." Jones signed with TNA in July and won TNA's tag team title with Ron "The Truth" Killings last month despite being barred by a restraining order from doing anything physical that would hurt his future NFL playing career.

"What we talked about is let's create some better headlines," Carter said. "Let's get out there and do some things during this time off that are positive and start to build back people's trust and respect."

Jones said although this year's experiences have made him "a lot wiser."

"I know what decisions to make, what decisions not to make. As far as change, I wouldn't change myself for nothing in the world. I just need to change some of the decisions I make," he said.

Incident between Pacman, Haynesworth investigated
By JIM WYATT
Staff Writer

DENVER ? Titans officials are investigating an apparent altercation between suspended cornerback Pacman Jones and defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth this past weekend, Coach Jeff Fisher confirmed Monday night.

"I am looking into it right now, but I am not going to comment,'' Fisher said after the Titans lost 34-20 to the Broncos. "We will look into it more (today).''

Haynesworth made the trip to Denver but was inactive for the game because of a hamstring injury.

It's unclear where in Nashville the altercation took place.

Metro police spokesman Don Aaron, in Denver on Monday night, said police did not have record of an incident involving the two players and no Titans players had been arrested. Aaron said he would explore the matter in more detail upon returning to Nashville.

Jones is currently serving a one-year suspension from the NFL, and earlier this month Commissioner Roger Goodell said he would not be reinstated early. The NFLPA plans to appeal that decision.

With all the chaos surrounding the Patriots* and 'spygate', it's good to see things are business as usual in Pacman Land...

Source: Pacman exhibiting same behavior that landed him in trouble with NFL
ESPN.com news services
Updated: February 3, 2008, 12:38 PM ET

While Adam "Pacman" Jones remains suspended by the NFL, the Tennessee Titans cornerback continues to go to strip clubs and has missed more mandatory counseling sessions, a league source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

While Jones' return to the NFL was in no way imminent, representatives for cornerback have been told by nigh-ranking NFL officials not to expect him to be reinstated in the immediate future, sources said.

Jones was hoping to be reinstated following the Super Bowl.

On Tuesday, the Titans informed Jones and his representatives in a meeting that they plan to attempt to trade him, but Jones can't be traded until he is reinstated.

The Titans had no comment on Jones' status, though it released a statement, saying in part: "Assuming he is reinstated at some point, which we have received no indication when or if that will occur, we face various decisions. At this point, no decisions have been reached ... We will not comment otherwise until the suspension has ended and we have reached conclusions about his future with the club."

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he remains "disappointed" with Jones' decision making and that the player might need more time to prove his behavior has changed.

In an interview with The Tennessean following his annual state of the NFL address Friday in Phoenix, Goodell said continued incidents involving Jones have gotten his attention, and the cornerback has not "demonstrated that he understands the message clearly and that he is making the correct decisions."

An NFL spokesman told ESPN a decision on Jones will be made in the offseason, after the Super Bowl.

However, Worrick Robinson, Jones' attorney, said Jones would like to return to the Titans if and when he is reinstated, The (Nashville) Tennessean reported Friday.

"He likes playing for the Titans, he cares tremendously for his fellow players and appreciates the relationships he has with the coaches," Robinson said Thursday, according to the report. "But he's got to be reinstated first, and then the Titans will have decisions they'll have to make at some point."

Separately, a Tennessee judge dismissed two misdemeanor charges Thursday from an incident Aug. 25, 2006, leaving only one Georgia criminal charge still pending against him. But Jones didn't help himself by being in an Atlanta strip club Jan. 3 while the Titans were prepping for a playoff game.

An attorney who asked that Jones be arrested for allegedly punching her withdrew her request Jan. 16. Atlanta police said Thursday they will not investigate Jones without the victim's help.

Robinson said the issue of Jones being in a club remained and that there's no excuse for that.

"He's a grown man. ... But he's got to take responsibility for his actions. When he's asked, he's going to have to step up and say he was there, that there is no excuse," Robinson said.

Goodell's strict standards are well-documented.

Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman is hoping for full reinstatement by April after sitting out the last two seasons.

Originally suspended the first four games of the 2006 season for skipping a drug test, the punishment was extended to a full season after a drunk driving arrest. Two Georgia men accused Thurman of kicking and hitting them at a party last June. No charges were filed, but Goodell turned down Thurman's request to reinstate him for 2007.

The Titans might not want Jones back. They went from giving up the most yards defensively in the NFL in 2006 with Jones to fifth-best and a 10-6 record with a playoff berth without him.

A video popped up recently on the Internet showing Jones saying he saw himself in Dallas with a couple of Pro Bowls in two or three years.

Jones did not comment Thursday when asked if he had done enough to be reinstated. Robinson said the video was shot last summer, when Jones was upset at not being allowed to take part in training camp.

"He still considers himself to be a member of the Titans' team until he's told otherwise. We don't have any reason to think otherwise. But again, he's got to be reinstated before that hurdle can be crossed," Robinson said.

One step in that direction came with the dismissal of misdemeanor public intoxication and disorderly conduct charges stemming from an incident Aug. 25, 2006, outside a club in this Nashville suburb.

Jones had been upset over his missing wallet and was arrested after cursing at officers before leaving.

With Jones' no contest plea in Las Vegas on Dec. 6, he now has only one pending charge of felony obstruction left in Georgia from a February 2006 encounter with a police officer. A hearing in that case has been postponed until March.

The most authorities here could have punished Jones was a $50 fine for each charge, and District Attorney William Whitesell said Jones had been punished much more for his behavior through the league's suspension.

He missed out on $1.29 million in base salary.

This case had been settled a year ago. Jones had to pay court costs and go through anger management with the judge telling him to stay out of trouble for six months.

But Las Vegas police named Jones as the person who incited a fight inside a strip club on Feb. 19, 2007, that led to a triple shooting that left one man paralyzed. Whitesell argued last July that Jones being charged in Nevada was enough to show that the cornerback did not follow the agreement.

Jones pleaded no contest Dec. 6 in Las Vegas to conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct in a plea deal reducing two felony charges.

Before dismissing these charges, the prosecutor asked Jones to apologize to the officer in writing, which he did.

"Mr. Jones hopefully has learned something and been punished enough," Whitesell said.

The judge also asked Jones to speak to the court, and the cornerback said he has learned a lot about dealing with others and how to conduct himself.

"It won't happen again," he said.
