Titans, Pacman, and Wrestling Reach Agreement

After hours of negotiating, and a number of court hearings, Tennessee Titan Adam Pacman Jones will take part in a pro wrestling pay per view event Sunday night, but there is a catch.

Pacman wasn't even allowed to be a spectator at the wrestling event Sunday night, according to the Titans' original restraining order. But now, the suspended Tennessee Titan will be there, it's just that he won't be wrestling.  Pacman, the Titans, and TNA Wrestling came to that agreement late Friday night.

It sounds almost too good to be true. Representatives of the Tennessee Titans, TNA wrestling and Adam "Pacman" Jones are all happy with the new agreement.

Pacman is suspended for the year by the NFL for several off the field incidents, will appear Sunday night on "Hard Justice" a TNA pay per view event.

According to the new agreement, Jones can't push, shove, be pushed, be shoved or grapple. In short, Pacman Jones can not wrestle. A part of the agreement reads as followed:

  • A. Mr. Jones is hereby enjoined from providing any "wrestling" or "performing services" to TNA as a wrestler, a participant or as a contractor or employee of TNA in any activity that may subject him to significant risk of personal injury, More specifically, and by way of example but not limitation, Mr. Jones shall not engage in:
  • i. Physical contact with any wrestler, performer, spectator, announcer or other TNA personality or third party in attendance at any TNA event or performance.
  • ii. Wrestling, pushing, shoving, grappling or other physical activity associated with or related to professional wrestling;
  • iii. Use of or being struck by any tangible object or an actual or threatened weapon, missile, projectile or other instrument of harm or danger;
  • iv. Any other activity that may involve a significant risk of personal injury.

The Titans will certainly be watching. They said the limitations placed on Jones are there to protect their interests.

"He can do anything that will not put him at risk of an injury all the parties agree about that," said Titans Chief Operating Officer, Steve Underwood.

The Titans have been distant and hands off during Pacman's off the field troubles, prompting many to question whether or not the cornerback will ever play for the team again.

"I think a lot of people assume the Titans don't care. They do," said Jones' attorney Worrick Robinson.

Robinson, said Friday's successful negotiations are proof the Titans still have Pacman in their plans.

"It was said several times last night, ‘We want Adam Jones back on the field,' That was made clear, and I told him that and he took that to heart," said Robinson.

Pacman was suspended by the NFL in April. He's been arrested six times since he's been in the league. Jones currently faces two felony charges in Las Vegas for his alleged involvement in a night club shooting that left one man paralyzed.  So far, Jones has not been found guilty on any of the charges he's faced.
