Pacman wants out of Tennessee

by

Titans cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones said in this video he doesn’t want to be a Tennessee Titan anymore.

      “Hopefully I can get out of Tennessee. I want to go to Dallas.”

Since he was drafted three years ago, Pacman has been an enigma. Like many fans, I’ve both cheered him and booed him for his play. Also like many fans, I’ve both criticized him and defended him from criticism for his actions off the field.
There wasn’t a lot of middle ground, though. It seems like most fans either loved him or hated him. His approval rating, so to speak, was perhaps 50% for a while. That number has been steadily dwindling and now approaches zilch.
In the last three years, Pacman has kept giving people less and less reason to support him.
Saying he no longer wants to be a Titan was probably the final straw.
The Titans would probably love to trade him if they could. Several teams might take a chance on him. Denver might, even if they don’t need another cornerback. Oakland is a strong possibility.
Of course, Pacman still needs to get his legal problems in Georgia satisfactorily resolved. If not, he may never play in the league again for any team.

    Andrew,
    You are always on track as usual.
    As a fan, I hoped he had learned his lesson and wanted back with the team. I could easily see how he could have helped this team–but the last comments–all I can say is get what bonus money you can back and BYE!
    It would be great if Dallas would give us one of their first round picks—like to see the Titans make another choice in the first round,OR can we trade him for Chad Johnson?

    Pac-man SHOULD get out of Tennessee PRONTO—before more criminal charges are filed against him. I’d be happy to escort him to the Mexican border, so his sorry ass would never again be seen in an NFL uniform.

    Pac’s a pretty polarizing figure. Comments such as these aren’t going to help him if he is going to take additional snaps in a Titans uniform.

    good. Trade him and get as much as we can.

    i can hardly say i’m surprised by any comment or action taken by adam jones. the titans gambled and have lost on many fronts with their decision to draft him and at this point anything less than a 2nd round pick i would pass, suck it up and play the kid. no, he doesn’t deserve to play for the titans but at the same time the organization has plenty of blood on their own hands after they chose not to discipline him for his early actions and guaranteeing him so much money in his contract without any clauses to recover money for on/off field antics.
    So suit him up and make him play, we’ve already poured the money in to him and he is still an upgrade to the secondary and the kick return game. it would save the team from having to address those positions early or in free agency.
    Even if we do get a first or second round pick out of someone (which i doubt) the chances of getting a player that is ready to contribute is slim.
    long story short, we’ve endured this fiasco for three years…what’s one more? and we’ll still get a compensation pick when signs elsewhere in ’09

    i think that in 2006 he was a big factor for us untill he screwed up, he was a great deffensive player. it would be great to have him back but it would be even better if we could get a draft pick or at least another really good player that will do alot for us in the future.

    Screw Pacman. He sucks, get new recruits!! theres always somone better, especialy better than HIM

  8. Cody Says:

    GO STEELERS!!!!

    wow that guys retarded. i agree with matt up there. hes smart

  10. Tom Gower Says:

    I said when the suspension came down that Pac would never play in the NFL again, and nothing since then has happened that would change my mind about that. Let him use up all the air he wants, it’s irrelevant.

  11. wacko jacko in remington Says:

    Drexel, I meant no disrespect to those who truly believe Pac-man can be rehabilitated as a functional human being,a reformed citizen and a football player. In an ideal society, it could happen…but even then, only if Pac-man really, really wants to change. I just don’t think he wants to change or really cares at all about anyone or anything in society except himself. He exhibits all the traits of a sociopath, i.e., a person without a conscience. Now you tell me how such a person could possibly be a team player who puts team goals ahead of his own ego? I know he made some big plays for the Titans in 2006, but the fact is he makes so many big plays OFF the field which hurt the organization and the fans’ support base so much that the trade-off isn’t worth it…And how can a coach possibly make personnel decisions from game to game not knowing if Pac will be behind bars on Sunday or not? I know you hope for the best in Pac and you dream that somewhere inside that mess there may be a good heart, but Tennessee fans have had enough for now—let Pac-man rehabilitate himself on his own time, far away from the spotlight that will be on the Titans.

  12. Drexel Perry Says:

    wacko,
    I think you misunderstood my post. I meant that Pac’s comments about not wanting to stay in Tennessee isn’t going to endear him to a fanbase that is already fed up with him, thus making it difficult for him if he takes more snaps in a Titans uniform.
    I didn’t have any problem at all with your comment.

    Oh okay Drexel— got it! Sorry for the misinterpret….
