Adam Jones Arrested Again
Can anyone put a damper on a big win like Jones and his run-ins with the law? Talk to anyone who knows Jones and you will hear that he is a great guy and the arrest are just not the guy they know. Fair enough, but he now has been arrested at least 8 times (4 as a Bengal), and while some of them are minor the volume is the issue. Is a disorderly conduct a big deal? By itself, no. When you have a history like Jones, it is. Following what was his best game of the year, Jones gets arrested….oh by the way, Jones is due in court in 2 weeks for his previous arrest.
The problem is, on the field, the Bengals need Jones. However, with his history, he will likely be suspended for his latest run-ins and at what point does his lack of self-control off the field no longer become worth it. If it were me making the decisions, Jones would be given a birthday gift tomorrow….his walking papers.
