Titans to Look to Move Pacman Upon his Return

Jones 

It appears that suspended Titans cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones is not going to be coming back to Tennessee when the NFL allows him to return. Jones’ situation when it comes to coming back to the Titans has been pushed aside by head coach Jeff Fisher since the end of the season last weekend, and ESPN’s Len Pasquarelli is stating that it is not likely he will be back with the team.

Pasquarelli states that Jones still faces litigation on a number of fronts, and that it is a great unknown as to when commish Roger Goodell will allow him to take the playing field once again. Don’t forget Goodell’s hard stance on some other players who have been in trouble, including Cincinnati linebacker Odell Thurman, who assumed he would be back in uniform in 2007 but instead watched another year from home.

With that, Jones will at somepoint be back in the league, but look for the Titans to look for a willing trading partner for the cornerback. While he was chosen with the 6th overall pick in the draft, it looks as if the Titans are not going to even come close to gaining that type of value back for him. Look for Tennessee to accept something like a middle round pick for Jones, who has played 30 career games in two seasons and intercepted four passes for 130 yards and one touchdown.

The blame here has to be heaped on Fisher, who before picking Jones despite his rap sheet, was determined to be able to control the cornerback. It backfired in his face, and now because of it the team is trying to distance themselves as far away as possible from Jones, who has obvious talent to make plays but lacks the smarts to stay out of trouble. It’s a draft choice that the Titans regret doing to this day.

    Does this organization have no threshold of embarrassment or decency? Any team that would have this ignorant irresponsible person on their roster deserves to be punished by their fan base, and advertisers. Women fans, and the men who respect them, simply cant allow any more NFL cash to flow to this poor excuse for a person.

    Pac(ASS)MAN has been a pain the ass his whole time in Nashville. As a hardcore Titans fans I just wish Assman to taking a flying F…ing leap off a short porch.Too bad Assman couldn’t have kept it together he could ‘ve been a helluva NFL players. He’s going to end up on skid row…with the other bums…

    Pacman is not worth a plug nickel since he started getting into trouble that seems to follow him everywhere. When will this immature boy learn to stay the hell away from strip clubs and bars. Is he stupid or born that way. Stupid is as stupid does Forest Gump once said…

    titians would be foolish to get rid of jones–hell all he is gonna do is make another team that much better (aka randy moss to the patriots). they better take another look at their secondary before they get rid of him–whats trading him to make another team better gonna do for the titians?

    There’s absolutely no reason for the Titans to get rid of Pacman. True, he hasn’t made the best choices, but this is true of a lot of other NFL players; Pacman just gets the bad rap for it. He’s one of the top 5 cornerbacks in the league, and with Griffin, Hope, Pacman, and someone else (probably Harper for now but hopefully someone will work out better in the long run) the Titans will have an awesome secondary. Their defense is good not only because of a strong front seven but because the back 4 can bring it. Bring Jones in and this defense can do extraordinary things. Just look at his stats against Marvin, one of the best receivers in the league.

    Please bring pac back. I’m convinced he’s learned and is a better person for it. It will be STUPID to let him go. Everyone makes mistakes and the only difference with pacman is, he always catches the rap for stuff that he’s not even at. Please bring him back and for the people that has all this negative stuff to say about him need to look in the mirror. As far as I’m concerned, angels are only in heaven. Let him come back, and if he does something else, then let him go.
