Pacman "Adam" Jones is at the center of a new controversy, after an altercation with his bodyguard Wednesday morning at a Dallas hotel. This comes mere days after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told Adam Jones to keep a low profile and stay out of trouble.
Way to listen "Adam."
Although no one was arrested or charged with any crime, this clearly does not look good for the league's most notorious player that isn't named Mike Vick.
Suspended for a year after he made it rain at a strip club, and helped cost a man the ability to walk, Adam Jones said that he was a changed man. He shed his name "Pacman" and decided to go by his birth name, Adam.
Still, his attorney Worrick Robinson is not convinced of any wrongdoing. After speaking with Jones, Robinson said "I'm not satisfied anything has happened. I perform due diligence on rumors anytime there is an allegation made against a player I represent, and at this point I can tell you that I'm not satisfied that anything occurred.''
You're not satisfied? What does that even mean? Of course you're not satisfied. Police are attracted to your client like moths to a light. How can you refer to this as a "rumor?" Police were called to the scene! The level of protection that Adam Jones has is getting ridiculous.
Why were the cops called then Worrick? At 1:30 in the morning no less. Stuff like this boggles my mind.
Jones has been involved in several incidents off the field that have been detrimental to his career. Luckily, Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones does not mind taking on players who have had a checkered past.
However, when Jones tells you to keep a low profile, you keep a low profile. Fights are going to happen, but there is a time and a place for them. Part of keeping a low profile is staying out of the public eye. Having the police called on you at 1:30 in the morning at a hotel in Dallas isn't exactly keeping a low profile.
This is the risk the NFL and Roger Goodell ran when they decided to reinstate Adam Jones. Did they trust him to stay on the right side of the law? Maybe, maybe not. However, you would think that a player that has gotten chance after chance after chance would just relax and play football.
Some people in Dallas and in the media would like to think that Adam Jones is a changed man. However, if incidents like this keep happening, he is going to end up in another 'wrong place, wrong time' scenario and may not be so lucky. Some people don't change, and if Adam Jones is going to keep acting like this, his reinstatement in the NFL may be in jeopardy.
