Pacman gets one year!

In disciplinary action handed down by NFL Commissioner Goodell, Tennessee Titan CB Adam "Pacman" Jones received a one year suspension for "numerous violations of the NFL's personal conduct policy."

Jones was interviewed in the past 10 times by law enforcement officials. Most recently Jones and his entourage have been implicated in a shooting at a Vegas strip club that paralysed a man.

Bengals WR Chris Henry was given an 8 game suspension for conduct resulting in 4 arrests in a 14 month period.

Both players are suspended without pay. Among Jones' requirements for his suspension:


• He must have no more run-in with law enforcement.

• He must comply with all required counseling, education, and treatment assigned by the NFL or the judicial system.

• He must obey the restrictions that have been agreed to by he and the Titans.


• He may not be at the Titans' facility through May 31 and may not participate in any practices or workouts during his suspension. Starting June 1, he must visit the team facility once per week to meet with the team's player development director. Also, beginning June 1, he is permitted to spend one day a week at the team facility for conditioning, film study, and other activities.

• In conjunction with the Titans, Jones must develop a structured program of community service or other activity. This program must be submitted to the NFL for approval.

Henry will be reinstated after the Bengals' eighth regular-season game if he meets the following conditions:

• He must have no more run-in with law enforcement.


• He must comply with all required counseling, education, and treatment assigned by the NFL or the judicial system.


• He is allowed to be at the Bengals' facilities during the rest of the offseason and he must meet weekly with the team's player development director.


• If he fully complies with all conditions, he may participate in the training camp and Bengals preseason games.


• During the 2007 season, he must meet weekly with the team's player development director, but he may not attend or participate in practice.


• He must fully comply with all conditions imposed on him by any court, including requirements of community service.
Failure to comply could result in a lifetime banishment from the NFL. Good luck with that Bentley, Pacman!
