Broncos reportedly close to signing veteran CB Adam Jones

Looking for some veteran depth at cornerback and on special teams, the Denver Broncos reportedly worked out former Pro Bowl cornerback Adam “Pac Man” Jones Sunday morning.

According to this report from NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, said workout will likely result in Jones signing with the Broncos.

An 11-year NFL veteran, Jones has spent each of the past eight seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. The 34-year-old former West Virginia star has been an embattled personality throughout his career, having seen himself suspended by the NFL for the 2007 season for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

On the field, Jones has more than proven himself capable of playing a big role. He’s started 39 games for Cincinnati over the past three seasons, recording 23 passes defended and five interceptions during that span.

Denver is set at starting cornerback with Chris Harris and Bradley Roby holding down the fort. But the team has struggled with depth thus far this preseason. That’s where Jones comes into play. He can play both on the outside and in the slot.
