The Cincinnati Bengals had their first day of offseason workouts on Monday, and Adam “Pacman” Jones is already in the news for something negative.
Jones, who was arrested in the offseason and is taking anger management classes, lashed out at a reporter for asking a question that Jones had already addressed.
First, Jones told reporters how thankful he is to be back with the franchise, and he thanked owner Mike Brown and head coach Marvin Lewis for giving him another chance. He said he is happy to be in Cincinnati and happy to be a part of the franchise.
Then, he told reporters that he didn’t want to comment any more on the issue, but one reporter asked Jones if he had anything to prove to fans for them to welcome him back since there were “a lot of people upset with the way things went down in the offseason for you.” Jones did not respond to the question kindly.
“Didn’t I just tell you don’t ask me that?” Jones said according to the Dayton Daily News. “You out the (interview). Turn around. Go back that way. See you. Next question. That’s his last interview for the year.”
According to Jay Morrison of the Dayton Daily News, Jones continued to talk negatively about the reporter, and appeared to lose his temper before Marvin Lewis came in the locker room and helped him calm down.
This will be the cornerback’s eighth season with the Bengals after spending one year in Dallas and two with the Tennessee Titans. Jones has had plenty of off-the-field trouble throughout his career, and while this is a minor incident, it’s not the ideal start for him and the Bengals.
