Oh nothing, Just Pacman Jones (maybe) chilling with Rod Stewart


Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones is vacationing in Miami this week. If you want to see some photos from his trip, you can check out his Instagram page. What you’ll find is pretty much the standard — some pictures of a hotel pool, the beach, his kids swimming, and Pacman kicking it with Rod Stewart.

OK, maybe the Rod Stewart thing isn’t the standard. It still happened, and Pacman was pumped about it.

“Omg look who’s at my hotel!!!” Jones wrote alongside the photo.

Not the most flattering picture of Stewart, who is pushing 70 and looks like he may have spent too many hours in the sun with a pina colada or two. Of course, there’s a chance this dude isn’t Stewart and just looks like him, but we can still pretend.

This is probably the oddest couple we have seen since Tommy LaSorda got together with this famous rap artist. We need pictures of Pacman and Rod (or fake Rod) clubbing together and we need them now.

Pacman Jones reportedly threatened David Nelson: ‘I’m going to find out where you live’

Pacman-Jones-Says-He-Was-too-Immature-With-TitansCincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was unhappy with the way New York Jets wide receiver David Nelson played against him on Sunday. Pacman thought Nelson threw numerous cheap shots during the Bengals’ 49-9 blowout victory, one of which drew an unnecessary roughness penalty at the end of the third quarter.

“(Nelson) was playing dirty,” Jones said after the game. “He cut me like four times after the play. Thank God I took my medicine today, I guess, and I didn’t go off. Hopefully, he’ll get fined. At least three fines. There were three real cheap shots after the play.”

I doubt Nelson is going to be fined three times, but we get the point. Jones was furious. According to the NY Daily News, he was so angry that he may have crossed the line by threatening Nelson.

“I’m going to find out where you live and come and get you,” Jones reportedly told Nelson at one point during the game.

Pacman and Rex Ryan were also seen jawing at one point, and Pacman says Rex had told him to “shut the hell up.”

We’d have to see the game to know whether we agree with Pacman about Nelson playing dirty, though the officials obviously agreed on at least one play. Even if Nelson was throwing cheap shots, there’s a line you can’t cross with trash talking. Threatening someone like that would constitute crossing the line. Given Pacman’s incredibly long list of off-field issues, the last thing he should be doing is threatening to find out where someone lives.

Pacman Jones: I’m 99 percent sure Andy Dalton can lead us to a Super Bowl

andy-daltonAndy Dalton has been one of the more efficient quarterbacks in the NFL since joining the Cincinnati Bengals three years ago. He isn’t going to throw for 5,000 yards like Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers, but he is capable of doing enough to put his team in a position to win. In this age of the pass-heavy offense, can Dalton do enough to win an AFC Championship?

Adam “Pacman” Jones is very confident in his quarterback. However, there is still a small piece of him that wonders if Dalton can lead Cincinnati to a championship.

“I’d say I’m about 99% convinced that Andy can take us to the Super Bowl,” Jones told Erik Kuselias on NBC Sports Network’s Pro Football Talk.

Pacman was then asked what Dalton would need to do for him to feel 100% confident.

“I think he just needs to step up vocally and lead the team but I think he has the tools and all the weapons to lead us there,” he replied.

In his third NFL season, now is the time Dalton needs to take his game to the next level. The Bengals have a solid defense, but it’s not good enough to reach a Super Bowl with Dalton averaging just one touchdown pass per game. He needs to do a better job of getting the ball to AJ Green and allowing him to dominate games. Scoring 13 points in a victory, like the Bengals did last week, won’t cut it most weeks.

And apparently Dalton needs to step up and lead more. The AFC does not look all that strong. We’re waiting for a top dog to emerge. It sounds like Jones is waiting for the same thing to happen within his own locker room.

Pacman Jones got an awesome Pacman birthday cake

Pacman Jones cake

Pacman Jones turned 30 on Monday and celebrated his birthday with a killer cake. That cake is straight out of the Pacman video game, matching the Cincinnati Bengals cornerback’s nickname. And if you look carefully, they really did it up properly. There’s no bow on the head or lipstick — that’s a straight OG Pacman cake, no Ms. Pacman business. Excellent detail.

And what’s up with all the Adam Jones stealing all the good birthday cakes? I’m not sure whether the Bengals’ Adam Jones or the Baltimore Orioles’ Adam Jones had the better cake.

Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones reportedly arrested for disorderly conduct

pacman-jonesCincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was arrested once again on Monday morning. According to WCPO in Cincinnati, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said Jones was cited for disorderly conduct.

A 2013 Dodge Durango that Pacman was a passenger in was reportedly pulled over at about 2:30 a.m. on Monday. The driver, 33-year-old Tishana F. Holmes, was driving 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. She allegedly refused a field sobriety test and was arrested for driving while under the influence. Jones was arrested for disorderly conduct at some point during the stop.

Jones is turning 30 next week, and it appeared he was celebrating his birthday on Sunday night.

This is about the 3,000th time Jones has been arrested since entering the NFL. If you check out our Adam Jones tag, you’ll notice that almost all of the stories involve Pacman getting himself into trouble in some way. Most recently, he was charged with assault after a video showed what looked like him punching a woman outside a bar. If he is found guilty of disorderly conduct, a suspension will almost certainly be coming from the NFL.

Pacman Jones on ESPN Radio: ‘Hoe, where in the f— did you come from?’

Pacman-Jones-Says-He-Was-too-Immature-With-TitansAdam “Pacman” Jones made an appearance on ESPN Radio recently in an attempt to clear up some of the rumors that are swirling around regarding his recent arrest. Last monday, Jones was arrested for assaulting a 34-year-old woman at a downtown Cincinnati nightclub. He later plead not guilty and claimed he simply acted in self-defense, which is a story Pacman is sticking to.

On Wednesday, Pacman tried to explain what we all saw on this video, which looked him hitting a woman in the face when he could have easily walked away.

“You see at the beginning of the video I went over there to talk to the two young ladies who were sitting in the chair,” Jones explained. “And the two behind them wasn’t even outside. When I went back over there and told them I ain’t taking no pictures, the young lady in the black immediately got up and that’s when I was approached by the young lady on the wall with the beer who was taking a picture. I was like, ‘Hoe, where in the f— did you come from?’

“She was like, ‘Who the (expletive) you think you is?’ And I was like ‘Look, I don’t want any problems, man. You look like you’ve had too many.’ Before I could say that is when I got hit with the bottle. She swung and hit me with a bottle and it was just an instant reaction to slap her shoulder down.”

Pacman Jones will speak to rookies about staying out of trouble

Pacman-Jones-Says-He-Was-too-Immature-With-TitansAdam “Pacman” Jones has once again been invited to share his unfortunate experiences with incoming rookies at the NFL Rookie Symposium near the end of June. Last year, Jones spoke to rookies about managing money and shared a touching story about the time he managed to blow $1 million in a single weekend. This year, the circumstances are a bit different.

When Pacman spoke to rookies last summer, it had been about a year since his last run-in with the law. This time around, Jones has found himself back in hot water after he allegedly punched a woman outside a bar on June 5. The Bengals corner insisted he acted in self-defense, but this surveillance video may paint a different picture.

In the wake of his recent arrest, many have questioned whether it is still appropriate for Jones to speak at the Rookie Symposium. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, NFL Vice President of Player Engagement Troy Vincent said Jones will remain on the list because of the connection he made with rookies last year. Vincent said the league likes that his experiences are “real” and not role play.

“You are not going to trick an athlete,” he explained. “They know when it is dressed up and not real. When you can sit among your peers and just talk about your life, someone is learning from that. They can look at him and see themselves from the way they look to where they have originated.”

For this particular job requirement, I guess you could say Pacman’s resume has gotten even stronger. After he was released from jail last Monday, Jones stuck to his story about acting in self-defense.

“I’m not out drinking, getting drunk,” he said. “All I was doing was protecting myself. I wouldn’t like to harm no woman, period. … Most of my family are women. I don’t even have a dad. I’m not into that, and I don’t condone that.”

Whether he acted in self-defense or not, it sounds like Jones has learned another valuable lesson. Walking away from a confrontation is always the best bet, especially if there is a fence separating you and the person you are arguing with. Perhaps he can pass that wisdom on to NFL rookies in addition to some money-saving pointers.
