Pacman awaits fate
Adam Jones
Posted Apr 4, 2007

Adam Jones met with NFL commisioner Roger Goodell Tuesday to discuss his future in the league. Jones is hoping to lessen or avoid a long suspension after his series of arrests.

Goodell has said he will announce his decision on suspensions or other disciplinary action before the draft on April 28. Goodell also met with Cincinnati Bengal Chris Henry as well concerning his run ins with law enforcement.

The NFL issued no comment concerning the matter and the lawyers for the players had no immediate response. The meeting was held away from the NFL offices where television cameras stationed themselves with no one to interview.

Jones has been arrested five times and questioned by police in 10 episodes since he was drafted in 2005. Las Vegas police recommended last week that he be charged with a felony and two misdemeanors for his role in a Feb. 19 strip club fight that led to a triple shooting.

Goodell has set his plan in place to clean up the image of the league and make an example of players that don't comply with the new league conduct policy. After meeting with the players he met with NFLPA executive director Gene Upshaw to discuss the matter as well. Upshaw has already expressed his agreement with the need for a stricter conduct policy for the players.

The situation leaves the team in limbo concerning their depth in the secondary for next season and what priority they should put on the position in the draft. The decision hasn't been rendered as of yet, but a long suspension should be expected from the league for Jones.
