The Adam Jones Story Is A Lie.

Adam Jones is good at a lot of things. Playing corner. Returning punts. I'll bet, reciting Miranda Rights. He's also really good at telling us a story, his story. Unfortunately, it's fiction.

Sr. Bowl quick hits: Bullock, Bengals talking about return as kicker becomes an off-season priority

Whenever the Bengals have made a decision on a kicker for the long haul in the Marvin Lewis Era, they’ve always opted for the recycled veteran in the Shayne Graham and Mike Nugent mold before they ended their careers in Cincinnati as the club’s second- and third all-time leading scorers.

Is it time for the Cincinnati Bengals and Adam Jones to part ways?

The Cincinnati Bengals have a decision to make. Just how much do they value cornerback Adam Jones? A video released by Cincinnati police on Monday night might complicate those thoughts. The video shows Jones, in the back of a squad car, going on a profane tirade at the officers following his arrest on Jan. 3. At one point, Jones told an officer, "I hope you die tomorrow."

Not much precedent for Bengals' release of Jones

With the Bengals considering Adam Jones' future with the team following the release of a 20-minute video that shows Jones in the back seat of a Cincinnati police vehicle, repeatedly shouting expletives at Sgt. Jarrod Cotton, the team's history of giving second chances to players with off-the-field issues - before or after they joined the Bengals - again becomes relevant.

Hue Jackson: RG3 not written off and he doesn't know No. 1 pick yet

Gridiron Heights, Ep. 20: Roger Goodell Hosts the Griddies

As Gridiron Heights prepared for Super Bowl LI, Roger Goodell faced a tough crowd while hosting the Griddies. Surely no other emcee has fined an audience member. The commissioner couldn't keep Antonio Brown's attention away from Facebook, and an ousted star didn't let him finish the presentation for best team.

Chris Simms' All-22 Team from NFL Conference Championships

Is anyone trying to coach anymore? It’s a valid question after an absolute stinker of a playoff cycle—and one I can’t seriously answer. When I look at the 10 games that got us here (minus Packers-Cowboys), I see the creative teams advancing and the boring teams wondering what the hell just happened.

On Tuesday at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., Swinney offered insight on his former star quarterback and gave the Browns brass a bit of advice for draft day.
