    Pacman Adam Jones to sign with Bengals

    Bengals beat reporter Joe Reedy confirms that the team is currently finalizing a contract with free agent Pacman Jones.

    It appears a deal should be finalized by week's end. The contract is expected to involve minimum salaries, but include incentives that could boost Pacman's earnings. In Cincinnati, he'll battle for work in sub-packages.

    Bengals do enjoy the criminals.

    I think they should just change their name to the Cincinnati Convicts, they already have the prison jump suit orange.

    Who was in trouble for them last year?

    Having said that, this is a terrible signing for them.

    meh, I don't see how it's so terrible. You get a guy for league minimum. If he reverts to his old ways, he gets cut, and they are out nothing. It's not like he's going to be a starter for the Bengals. The guy is not really in a position to make waves in the locker room, because the moment he does, he's cut.

    I meant perception wise. I thought they had really gotten past that stigma last year. Now this sets that back a little. Pacman has never really been a locker room problem. It is outside where he gets into trouble.

    But they didn't ever shake that stigma, did they?

    Theis offseason
    Signed Antonio Bryant
    Signed Matt Jones

    Also, look at their draft. Carlos Dunlap.

    Doesn't look like they've changed all that much

    OK, you have me a little there, however none of those things took place with the Bengals. Pacaman is on a level different than those guys.

    Great recycled stuff from the mid-90s.
    They've made the playoffs twice since '05. Swept the division last year in some measure by offering opportunities to guys who needed to (re)prove themselves. As others have indicate, if it doesn't work, the guy gets cut.

    Totally agree. Plus the Bengals have the best uniforms in all of sports, and I love 'em for it!

    Re: Pacman Adam Jones to sign with Bengals

    I just dont quite understand the Bengals' (and the Cowboys' for that matter) fascination with hiring guys who seem to forget that they are PROFESSIONAL athletes, and get paid a salary most of us would gladly take. Why not give some of those athletes who have done nothing but bust their butts to be talented, yet not run their mouth, have to be the center of attention all the time, cause locker room drama, and legal drama outside of it, a chance?

    Side note, can someone tell me why Pacman's helmet appears to be 20 times larger than anyone else's? It cant be his hair, and Polomalu from the Steelers has a lot more hair than he does. Just curious.

    I havent noticed the size of his helmet per say, but im guessing he needs a bigger one because of how smart he is. I mean he donates money to strippers. He is almost like Robin Hood, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor.

    Think about it.....
