Goodell not shortening suspension for Pacman
NASHVILLE, Tenn.— NFL commissioner Roger Goodell informed Titans cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones on Tuesday that he will serve out his entire suspension for the 2007 season.
Jones had met with the commissioner last week in New York, pleading for some leniency and an early return. But the cornerback whose biggest community service was buying wrestling tickets for Atlanta students to watch him at a pay-per-view event last month didn’t convince Goodell.
The commissioner told Jones his suspension will last through this season, which would include the playoffs if the Titans (6-2) qualify.
“He will be eligible to begin working out at the Titans’ facility following the conclusion of the team’s season,” the league said in a statement late Tuesday afternoon.
