NFL says no to "Pacman" for training camp

Jul 26, 2007 - 7:59 PM NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) -- The NFL on Thursday denied a request by suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones that he be able to join his teammates for training camp.

"The request by Adam Jones to revise the terms of his suspension so that he can participate in training camp has been denied," the NFL wrote in a statement.

The Titans open training camp Friday.

Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 season in April by commissioner Roger Goodell for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Jones' agent Michael Huyghue had contended that Goodell's ban did not include the preseason or training camp.

In June, Jones was arrested for the sixth time since being drafted fifth overall in 2005 on two counts of felony coercion stemming from a fight at a Las Vegas strip club. A shooting after the fight left a man paralyzed.

Jones faces up to 12 years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted of each charge. Despite repeated run-ins with the law he never has been convicted.

Jones also is being sought by Georgia police for questioning as a witness in a shooting on June 18.
