Adam Jones is moving out of the country. No, he hasn’t been deported. He’s reached an agreement to play for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL.
Jones agreed in principle to a one-year deal with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers late Monday night and is expected to join the team as early as Wednesday.
“It’ll be a good experience for me to get back in game shape and compete and play football, which I like to do,” Jones told SI.com. “I’m real happy for the opportunity that’s been given to me. Of course it’s disappointing to me to not be playing in the NFL. But things happen and you have to adjust.” via, via.
Everyone in the NFL seems to be sick of Pacman’s crap, and it’s understandable. A player prone to suspension is no different than a player prone to injury, and neither is worth the money if he can’t stay on the field. So now Jones will probably get suspended while hurting himself and cap off a notably dubious career. Wow, “cap off” is the best way I can phrase that? Let’s see if I can do better. Oh, damn, I already hit “Publish.” Oh, well.
