Veteran NFL CB Adam Jones announces retirement

Adam Jones, NFL, Bengals

Adam “Pacman” Jones has officially announced his retirement from the NFL according to his Instagram page. Pacman Jones posted a picture to Instagram of a gift he received for retiring from Chase Automotive.

Jim Wyatt of Titans online confirmed the news and gave him props for having a long and successful career, even though at times it was turbulent.

Jones was a first round pick in 2005 by the Tennessee Titans and was instantly an impact player on both defense and special teams. There was never a doubt about his talent on the field, but he never could seem to stay out of trouble.

It seemed he was always in trouble including the most noticeable incident at a Las Vegas Strip Club. Jones and some of the members of his party got into a fight and followed someone back to the club and opened fire. Three people were injured in the incident, and initially, Jones was charged with felonies. He ended up getting the felonies dropped in return he pleaded no contest to conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct.

Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 season and struggled to his place in the NFL until he joined the Bengals in 2010. He dealt with injuries with the Bengals but spent eight successful seasons with the team before being released.

Last season he appeared in seven games for the Denver Broncos, and it appears that will be his last games in the league.

He will be remembered for his antics on the field and off, but he was a solid player in the league when he was on the field.
