League Announces Goodell Not Reducing Jones's Suspension
The NFL announced today that Commissioner Roger Goodell has decided not to reduce the season-long suspension of Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam (Pacman) Jones for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
Goodell had made the suspension reviewable after 10 games and met last week in New York with Jones. But Goodell didn't reduce the half-season suspensions that he imposed on Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry and Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Tank Johnson, and he didn't reduce Jones's either. The league issued a written statement today saying that Jones will be eligible to work out at the Titans' training facility as soon as the team's season ends.
The Titans have not indicated whether they will allow Jones to return to the team. They issued a written statement that said: "As we have said all through this process, we understood the suspension was for a year and made preparations to move our team forward without Adam Jones. We will continue to monitor his situation and will address his future when he is reinstated by the commissioner."
