Adam 'Pacman' Jones Tweets That He Has Deal with Bengals

Kyle Battle@@KayBeeSportsCorrespondent IMarch 21, 2013

On Thursday morning, Adam “Pacman” Jones tweeted that he had agreed to a three-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals. Jones is the latest in a slew of free-agent re-signings from the Bengals in the weeks leading up to and during free agency.

Jones joins defensive ends Michael Johnson, Wallace Gilberry, Robert Geathers and linebacker Rey Maualuga on the defensive side of the ball from free agency. The Bengals were also able to re-sign the core of the special teams group by bringing back kicker Mike Nugent, punter Kevin Huber, long snapper Clark Harris and all-purpose guy Cedric Peerman.

The Bengals have yet to upgrade their offense via free agency. In fact, one could argue that they have downgraded thus far. Andre Smith remains unsigned, Andy Dalton doesn’t have a backup quarterback and the current backup at running back is Peerman, a player used primarily for his special teams abilities.

All of that would change by re-signing Smith.

The only details released on the Jones deal at this point are via Twitter. Jones tweeted that he agreed to a deal and the Bengals retweeted it. No dollar figures have been released at this point.

The next defensive priority in free agency is cornerback Terence Newman. Newman is entertaining two teams, the Bengals and the Raiders, he told NFL AM on NFL Network last week. Obviously, the Bengals want to bring Newman back. However, the impact of losing him is lessened now that Jones is back under contract.
