Titans players: Pacman let organization down
Adam "Pacman" Jones' Tennessee Titans teammates respected his talents and lauded him as a good guy to talk to and be on the practice field with.
But Jones' many well-documented off-field arrests and troubles that eventually led to his suspension for the entire 2007 season, definitely left a bad taste in some of his former teammates' mouths.
Both fullback Ahmard Hall and safety Chris Hope said that Jones' problems in some ways hurt the Titans organization because of him being a high draft pick that did not pan out and live up to expectations.
“He's a good guy. I had some personal conversation with him, but I think he kind of let the organization down,” Hall told TitanInsider.com. “Anytime an organization takes a chance on you, I feel like you owe them a little bit.
“When they take a chance on you and make you a first-round pick, you can't waste first-round picks in this league. First-round picks are what makes Super Bowl contenders. You see teams that are contenders and their first-round picks are superstars in this league. And he had that ability.”
The Titans could get their first chance to play against Jones Sunday when the Cincinnati Bengals visit Nashville. However, Jones tweaked his hamstring against Seattle and his status for Sunday is not certain.
