Adam Jones: Firing Jeff Fisher Is The Dumbest Move Ever

New, comments

Bengals cornerback Adam Jones hasn't been without his own controversies. Heck, this is a man who was already on probation when he was drafted into the NFL in 2005. Nothing spoke T-R-O-U-B-L-E than Adam Jones coming to a city near you.

A few months after being drafted, he was arrested and charged with assault and felony vandalism and a few months after that, police were called at the annual Nashville Sports Council Kickoff Luncheon because he had a little tantrum about waiting in line for his vehicle later that night. In February of 2006, Jones was arrested again for felony and misdemeanor counts of obstruction of justice at an "incident" outside a house in Fayetteville, George.

Later that year, his car was confiscated because police were targeting a friend that borrowed the car for a music video.In August of 2006, he was arrested in Tennessee for disorderly conduct and public intoxication. In October of that year, Jones was cited for misdemeanor assault for allegedly spitting in the face of a female student at Tennessee State University. Then there was the incident at Las Vegas.

All of this happened while Jones was with the Tennessee Titans. So perhaps disappointing Jones isn't really that big of a deal to Titans ownership. Yet, he's making his opinion known. Jeff Fisher, the Titans head coach with Jones throughout his Titans career, recently split with Tennessee. Jones said in reaction to it:

"I have no idea why they [fired him]. It's gotta be the dumbest move ever," the Cincinnati Bengals cornerback said. "But that's how they do things in Tennessee. It can be very weird down there. I still can't believe it."

Not that we have much to say on the matter, but we get the feeling that once Jones leaves Cincinnati, how might his reaction be of our lovely management. Oh, to know such things would be the golden goose of gossip!
