Pacman Jones warns rookies to avoid 'what I've gone through'
|Pacman Jones warns rookies to avoid 'what I've gone through'|
Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones addressed NFL rookies today at the league's rookie symposium, Jeff Darlington of NFL.com reports.
Jones would not allow the NFL Network or NFL.com (the only media platforms currently in attendance at the rookie symposium) to view his discussion with the rookies, and he was originally reluctant about conducting any interviews. He wanted this to be between he and them.
"I wouldn't want any of those guys to go through what I've gone through," Jones told Darlington. "It's not fun being on the news everyday for this mistake or that mistake because your boy did this or you did that. At the end of the day, my oldest girl is six right now, and she can read. She can type my name into a computer. You don't want her to see all of those negative things."
"I don't remember too much from my (2005) rookie symposium because I didn't pay attention," Jones said. "That was a problem -- and it probably would have helped me out with a lot of situations I've been in."
"If I could tell them anything, I just want them to realize this is a business. When you sign your contract, you are the head CEO of your company. The Adam Jones Company - whatever it is. We can't go running down a field for the rest of our life.
"Every decision you make is critical. It might not get you now. But it will get you later."
