Marvin Lewis takes shot at West Virginia over Pacman
Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, who knows a thing or two about having wayward and troubled players on his roster, says Adam "Pacman" Jones has been a hard worker since coming to the team last season.
Lewis told Tennessee reporters in Wednesday's conference call that Jones has matured, but took a shot at the University of West Virginia and Jones' then-coach with the Mountaineers Rich Rodriguez for not teaching Jones proper behavior and etiquette while he was there.
“I think he's grown up a lot. I feel he know he's made a lot of error in judgment," Lewis said via TitanInsider.com. It's unfortunate that a guy could go into college and spend three years on a college campus and not learn some of the things really they should learn. But hopefully he's learned those lessons now.”
Jones, of course, became the poster child for bad behavior in the NFL with six arrests and at least a dozen incidents where police intervened. He eventually was suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for all of the 2007 season, was traded to Dallas and eventually bounced to the Bengals after being out of football altogether in 2009.
