Adam Jones is not moving out of the country. Thought to be spending at least part of his fall in the Canadian Football League, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are reporting that such a deal has fallen through.

This seems like one of those ploys where a guy acts like he’s going to play someplace in hopes that someone else will swoop in with a better offer at the 11th hour and makes all his blues go away.
