Titans, Jones Reach Compromise on Wrestling Participation
Suspended cornerback Adam (Pacman) Jones and Tennessee Titans officials reportedly reached an agreement Friday night that will allow Jones to participate in a pro wrestling circuit but not as a wrestler.
The Tennessean reported that the compromise was struck during a six-hour meeting Friday night between representatives of Jones, the Titans and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. Under the agreement, Jones is not to have any physical contact or put himself at risk of injury, which the Titans contend would put him in violation of his NFL contract.
Earlier Friday, a Williamson County judge had granted the Titans' request for a temporary restraining order prohibiting Jones from making a scheduled appearance this weekend in a wrestling pay-per-view event. A hearing is scheduled for today.
Jones was suspended by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for the entire 2007 season for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Goodell made the suspension reviewable after 10 games.
