Suspended Pacman tears up over support
CINCINNATI — Cornerback Adam (Pacman) Jones accepted his onegame suspension for an off-season misdemeanour conviction, and he got emotional Thursday over the unwavering support he’s received from Bengals owner Mike Brown.
Jones is suspended by the NFL for the season opener as a result of his confrontation with a hotel security employee and an obscenity-filled tirade against arresting police officers. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour charge as part of an agreement, and other charges were dropped.
Brown unwaveringly defended Jones during interviews at the team’s annual pre-season lunch on Tuesday, saying the cornerback inspires him.
“Words can’t explain,” Jones said. “I can’t explain. I’m just deep from my heart that I have somebody that understands me as a person and that’s not quick to judge.”
Tearing up, he said, “See you all,” and he walked away.
