Default turd must serve full suspension

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3097764

It probably wasn't a good sign for Adam "Pacman" Jones that Tank Johnson and Chris Henry had to serve their entire suspensions. He'll have to do the same.



The NFL issued a statement on Tuesday, saying: "Commissioner Goodell notified Adam Jones today that his suspension will remain unchanged and will continue through the remainder of the 2007 season. He will be eligible to begin working out at the Titans' facility following the conclusion of the team's season."

The league suspended the Titans cornerback in April for violating the league's personal conduct policy, and the commissioner promised to review the case after Tennessee's 10th game. Jones had met with the commissioner last week in New York, pleading for some leniency and an early return.

The Titans, who have replaced their best defensive player, had been expecting the suspension to stand.

"As we have said all through this process, we understood the suspension was for a year and made preparations to move our team forward without Adam Jones," the team said in a statement. "We will continue to monitor his situation and will address his future when he is reinstated by the commissioner."

Attorney Worrick Robinson said Jones received a letter from the NFL notifying him of the commissioner's decision earlier Tuesday. They planned to talk further Tuesday night and a formal statement may follow Wednesday.

"He is very disappointed," Robinson said. "We're looking at different options."

Goodell said in August during a visit with the Titans that Jones had an opportunity before the Titans' 10th game to "do the right thing to earn your way back onto the field."

"I've often said it's not about what you say, it's about what you do. It's your actions, and I think the actions are the things that will have to determine that," Goodell said then.

Since Jones stopped appealing the suspension, he has been arrested for the sixth time since the Titans drafted him in April 2005. He was charged with two felony counts of coercion in the Feb. 19 fight at a Las Vegas strip club that led to a triple shooting with one man paralyzed.

He signed with a Nashville-based wrestling company and became a tag team champion despite a legal agreement with the Titans that prevents him from activities that could injure him. He gave hundreds of tickets to Georgia school children to watch him at a wrestling pay-per-view in October.

Another criminal case is pending, a felony count of obstruction in Georgia from a February 2006 arrest.

Johnson and Henry were recently activated by the Cowboys and Bengals, respectively, after serving their suspensions.

With Jones on the roster in 2006, the Titans ranked last in the NFL in yards allowed. Without him, the Titans currently rank second in total defense and first against the run. They replaced him by signing veteran Nick Harper and second-year cornerback Cortland Finnegan developed into a starter.

They also have plenty of depth with Reynaldo Hill and Kelly Herndon.

Pacman needs to suck it up and be a man.

Well, to be honest, it doesn't look like they really need him this year. I was hoping his absence would have left a bigger hole in the team.

True. It almost seems like their D plays better without him....except in the 4th quarter of course.
