Good­ell not short­en­ing sus­pen­sion for Pacman

The Covington News - - SPORTS -

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.
