  Game Over:  ‘Pacman’ Jones Retires From NFL – Veteran cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones, who made as much news off the field as on it during his 12-year NFL career, announced his retirement on social media. “I’m content,” Jones told ESPN Friday. “I had a hell of a run doing it. I’m at the point where I didn’t feel I would be top level if I tried to play now. I’m happy and I’m looking forward to spending more time with my family and the kids.” Jones, 35, appeared in seven games for the Denver Broncos last season, making two starts. He had 1 interception, 3 passes defensed and 9 tackles. He also returned 10 punts and four kickoffs for Denver. Before joining the Broncos, Jones spent eight seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, earning a first-team All-Pro nod in 2014 and receiving a Pro Bowl selection in 2015. Jones’ career was noted by brushes with the law. He was arrested in February and charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication, intimidation and resisting arrest at the Rising Sun Casino in Indiana, about 25 miles southwest of Cincinnati. He was arrested in January 2017 for allegedly pushing a security guard and failing to comply with law enforcement. A video from the back of a police car showed Jones going on a tirade against the arresting officer and telling him, “I hope you die tomorrow.” As a result of the incident, the NFL suspended Jones for the 2017 season opener.
