Former Tennessee Titans first-round pick and Pro Bowl cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones announced his retirement from the NFL after 12 seasons.

Jones, 35, took to his Instagram Story to make the announcement (h/t 247 Sports).

He then followed that up with another IG post.


Jones’ career can be classified in two categories. On the field, he was a dynamic playmaker with the ball in his hands.

During stints with the Titans, Dallas Cowboys, Cincinnati Bengals and Denver Broncos, Jones racked up nearly 6,000 total return yards and five touchdowns. He also recorded 17 interceptions on defense.

It was a different situation off the field. Jones was arrested multiple times for a plethora of incidents and found himself suspended by the NFL many times throughout his career.

Jones last suited up for the Broncos in 2018, recording three forced fumbles and an interception before being released in November.
