Titans’ Jones says he’s learned lesson

SHARE Titans’ Jones says he’s learned lesson

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones bought a full-page newspaper advertisement to print an open letter in which he promised to regain the trust of his team and fans.

In the ad in the sports section of Friday's editions of The Tennessean — Nashville's daily newspaper — Jones told his family, coaches, teammates and Titans fans he must reorganize his priorities.

"In the past few weeks, I have learned a lifetime of lessons," the letter states.

Jones writes of hoping to not only meet, but exceed the expectations people have of him.

"The first step in meeting these goals is for me to stop making the poor choices that have put me in this position," the letter reads.

Jones said he plans to appeal his season-long suspension by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, the same person who will hear that appeal. Cincinnati receiver Chris Henry, a teammate of Jones at West Virginia, also was suspended. But Henry received an eight-game ban.

In his letter, Jones said his attorneys advised him to appeal the suspension to "clarify some of the facts and address the unprecedented punishment that was imposed." Jones first announced his intention of appealing last week.

BENGALS SIGN MYERS: The Cincinnati Bengals on Friday signed veteran defensive lineman Michael Myers to a two-year contract. Myers, a 10-year pro who was an unrestricted free agent, started every game last season for the Broncos.

JAGS SIGNINGS: Receiver Ernest Wilford and reserve quarterback Quinn Gray signed their contract tenders Friday, ensuring the two restricted free agents will be with the Jacksonville Jaguars at least one more year.
