Cincinnati Bengals DB Adam Pacman Jones Will Speak To Rookies Despite Incident

Cincinnati Bengals CB Adam Pacman Jones is scheduled to all the rookies from this year’s NFL Draft. He speaks from experience. He has been through it all and has had issues with the law.

He recently was caught up in the news for “slapping” or “defending himself” a girl at the bar. The incident was caught on tape and the trial has still not been set.

Even after going through all of that, Jones still will be speak at the rookie symposium. He will be teaching the youngsters the way through the NFL and how to keep out of trouble, yet he found himself in a sticky situation all over again.

Troy Vincent, the NFL’s vice president of player engagement, shared his thoughts on Jones:

“You are not going to trick an athlete. They know when it is dressed up and not real,” Vincent told the newspaper. “When you can sit among your peers and just talk about your life, someone is learning from that. They can look at him and see themselves from the way they look to where they have originated.” – ESPN

Do you all think that Jones should be sharing about the pitfalls for young players in the NFL, despite his recent troubles?
