It turns out that Adam “Pacman” Jones will NOT be a Blue Bomber. On Wednesday, Winnipeg has announced that it will no longer pursue the controversial ex-NFL cornerback. The day before the announcement, multiple reports said that Jones would play for the CFL team in Manitoba.
“It is unfortunate that this situation became public; however, our position has remained consistent,” Blue Bombers coach Mike Kelly said in a statement. “We will pursue athletes that we believe will contribute to our organization on and off the field.
“We have completed our assessment and due diligence and at this time we will not be pursuing the services of Adam Jones.”
Selected 6th overall in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans, Pacman Jones has been suspended two times by the National Football League for off-field incidents, including for the entire 2007 NFL season. He was released in February 2009 by the Dallas Cowboys.
The 25-year old from Atlanta, Georgia has been arrested six times and was involved in twelve instances that required police intervention since being drafted in 2005.
The UFL, a new four-team league that is scheduled to start play in October, is still interested in Pacman Jones.
