Pacman to speak at rookie syposium

A man who didn't heed whatever advice was directed at him at the NFL Rookie Syposium in 2005 is hoping that the current group of draft picks will listen and learn from his mistakes.

Pacman Jones, yes, that Pacman Jones, will speak at this year's symposium at the behest of Commissioner Roger Goodell, who once suspended him for the entire 2007 season following a string of police incidents capped off by his involvement in a strip club fight that escalated into a triple-shooting.

"The message is, this is not a joke. At the end of the day you have to treat it like a business," Jones told "And you're a business owner and every decision you make is a reflection of you."

Jones knows his reputation as the poster child of bad behavior in the NFL precedes him still in some ways and hopes to make players see him in a different light after they listen to him.
