Jones Says He'll Appeal Suspension
Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam (Pacman) Jones said during a televised interview that he'll appeal the suspension imposed on him by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Jones told ESPN while attending a boxing event Friday night in Tunica, Miss., that he thinks Goodell made him the "poster boy" for the league's problems with criminal behavior by its players.
"I think it was a little bit harsh," Jones said "I expected the suspension. But for a whole year, for a guy that hasn't been charged with nothing, I really didn't agree with it. But for the most part, I am taking it like a man. I am going to appeal it and we'll see what the future brings."
On Tuesday, Goodell suspended Jones for the entire 2007 season for violating the league's conduct policy but made the suspension reviewable after 10 games. Jones's appeal would be heard by Goodell or a person designated by him, and most people in the league familiar with the case believe there's little or no chance that an appeal by Jones would be successful.
