Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones recently appeared on NBC Sports Network and admitted that he “lost his cool” in Cincinnati’s playoff matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers last season and that “it won’t happen again” while also addressing his future with the Bengals as well as the NFL in general with free agency around the corner.
“As of now, I don’t know, to be honest,” he said, while discussing how tampering happens in spite of NFL rules against it. “I know a lot of other teams have been contacting my agent saying if I don’t get signed there are other places I can go.”
Jones infamously drew a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the Bengals’ playoff game against the Steelers, one that allowed Pittsburgh to kick a game-winning field goal. In spite of that, plus his lengthy history of off-field issues, he is still a dominant corner at age 32, having managed 62 tackles and three interceptions last season.
That said, don’t be shocked if Jones has multiple suitors once free agency begins.
