Adam Jones: 'I Feel Unbelievable'

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Adam Jones feels the best he every had in a Bengals uniform and has been working hard to make sure he tops his 2012 season, which was one of his best.

Adam Jones feels his best as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals, according to Geoff Hobson. Jones, who has been hitting the weights hard, said he's working hard and running faster.

"I feel unbelievable," he said. "I'm running faster, I'm working hard and I know the defense like the back of my hand, so I don't have to think while I'm out there. It's just all reaction. I'm out catching punts every day. I feel good, man."

Jones has been squatting in the weight room for the first time since James Harrison ironically herniated a disk in Jones' neck during a punt return five years ago. Jones re-injured his neck in 2010. He feels completely healthy now, though.

When it comes to the small aches and pains in his hamstring and calf, which held him off the field last preseason, Jones said he just needs to stay hydrated and drink enough water to make sure he doesn't hurt himself.

Jones played well in 2012, both as a cornerback and as a punt returner. He was considered by many to be the league's top third cornerback and he can move into a starting position should either Leon Hall or Terence Newman go down with injury. With the amount the Bengals are in nickel, Jones, along with Dre Kirkpatrick, should get plenty of time on the field in 2013.

With Jones, hopefully a healthy Kirkpatrick, and guys like Brandon Ghee, Shaun Prater and converted rookie Onterio McCalebb, the Bengals will have a very deep secondary at the cornerback position. Considering some of the high-powered offenses on the schedule, like the Patriots, Broncos, Bears, Packers and Lions, they'll need all the help they can get.
