Pacman Jones' trials and tribulatons of his own making apparently got the attention of many of the players at the NFL's rookie symposium.
According to Bengals.com, Jones is offering to help any rookies who are willing to ask him for advice, and even gave some of them his phone number.
"There are privacy reasons. I don't want to say who I talked to," Jones said. "But there were some guys that were asking me about situations and how I would react now. Yeah, some guys have my number and if I can help, I will."
The NFL must hope as Pacman hands out advice, it won't be about the things he knows best, such as the best strip clubs in town, the proper technique on making it rain, or the phone numbers of bail bondsmen and attorneys.
Pacman now sounds contrite, and if he is sincere in wanting to help younger players avoid some of his many pitfalls, so be it. But with so many transgressions to atone for, let's not nominate Jones for the "Good Guy" award just yet.
