Last week, Adam “Pacman” Jones was invited by the NFL to attend the Rookie Symposium and share his experiences in the league with the incoming rookie class, detailing his professional hardships and financial irresponsibly.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, who spoke with Colts rookie tight end Coby Fleener, Jones told the rookies about a time he once managed to spend $1 million in a single weekend. Terrell Owens, who was sitting next to Jones during the lecture, turned to him and said, “Man, you crazy!”
Jones’ stories provided rookies with a real life insight on how easily their signing bonuses can come and go or how easy it is to hurt your reputation. Pacman no longer wants to be called Pacman because he wants to shake his horrible persona that hardly any NFL teams want to associate with.
