No Adam “Pac-Man” Jones for the First Regular Season NFL Game

by Marcelle English | Jersey Girl Sports | @jerseygirlsport The drama with Cincinnati Bengals, Adam “Pac-Man” Jones never seems to end. The NFL notified Jones on Friday that that he will be suspended without pay for the first 2017 regular season game for violating the league's Personal Conduct Policy. Back in May, Jones entered a plea of guilty to obstruction of official business stemming from a January 2017 hotel incident, where he only served two days' confinement and court fees. In the hotel incident, a security cam showed Jones repeatedly cursing a police officer and resisting jailers following a January arrest. Jones will be docked $425,000 of his $6.8 million-dollar salary. The NFL explained in a letter to Jones that the "extensive video documentation of the tone, tenor and nature of your interactions with law enforcement at the site of your arrest, during transportation to the jail, and during the booking process. As you acknowledged, your post-arrest words and actions reflected poorly on you and your family, the Cincinnati Bengals football club, and the NFL. While it is our understanding that appropriate apologies have been publicly extended, they do not completely negate your behavior and admission of culpability for the underlying conduct."
