The Detroit Lions’ interest in potentially signing Adam “Pacman” Jones is not new.
In fact, it goes back as far as last month at the NFL Combine when Jones’ agent, Nashville-based attorney Worrick Robinson, scheduled a meeting in Indianapolis with Lions representatives, according to a league source.
Lions coach Jim Schwartz knows Jones well, having coached him for two seasons after the Tennessee Titans made him the sixth overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft.
Jones’ many issues are well documented with his six arrests and 12 encounters with police during his time as a Titan, leading up to his suspension for the 2007 season and eventual trade to the Dallas Cowboys.
After Dallas acquired him from Tennessee, Jones was released by the Cowboys following the 2008 season and was out of the NFL last season.
Jones, who turns 27 this year, had a workout on March 19 in New Orleans and the Lions were one of the teams present, but their interest in the troubled cornerback long predated that.
