Pacman Jones Rejected By CFL’s Blue Bombers
Looks like former NFL cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones won’t be playing for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers after all.
The CFL team announced Wednesday it has ended its pursuit of the controversial ex-NFL cornerback, one day after multiple reports said Jones would play for the team.
“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.”
Jones is a former first-round draft pick of the Tennessee Titans who has twice been suspended by the NFL for off-field incidents – including for the entire 2007 season – and was released in February by the Dallas Cowboys.
