Pacman Jones will officially become a Cincinnati Bengal Monday, ending a three-month process that began with a workout in February alongside Matt Jones.
The decision to bring Pacman in was not well received throughout the Bengals organization, though. ESPN’s Len Pasquarelli writes the decision was “hardly unanimous” inside the front office, and it wasn’t a “slam dunk” among the coaches either.
Bengals front office translation: Mike Brown really wanted Pacman, and he’s the boss.
If nothing else, the Bengals are getting Jones with little relatively risk. He will “cut himself” with one misstep and he’s going to be the team’s third cornerback at the very best. He’s a role player, and even a roster spot can’t be assured.
