Pacman’ hoping commissioner reduces suspension

November 2, 2007


— Suspended cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones will meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in New York today about a possible early reinstatement.

Goodell suspended the Tennessee cornerback in April for the 2007 season and promised Jones' case could be reviewed after the Titans' 10th game, which is Nov. 19 in Denver. But Friday's meeting will come two days before the Titans' eighth game.

The NFL declined to comment.

The Titans will not have a representative at the meeting, and Jones will be accompanied by someone from the NFL Players Association.

Goodell suspended Jones in April for violating the league's personal conduct policy. At the time, Jones had been arrested five times since being drafted by the Titans with the sixth pick overall in 2005. He was arrested a sixth time in June on charges from a Las Vegas strip club fight.

The cornerback told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in October he thought he had done enough to be reinstated early.

"I did pretty much everything Mr. Goodell asked me to do. So all I can do is just wait and go back to speak with him," Jones said.

Jones is the only NFL player suspended for an entire season under the personal conduct policy, and the Titans were under the impression he would not return this year. They drafted Michael Griffin among other moves to replace Jones on the roster.
