After more than a year away from football, Adam “Pacman” Jones is attempting to catch on with the Cincinnati Bengals, and after the first practice he admitted to struggling, especially in coverage against Chad Ochocinco.
“Chad killed me today,” Jones said. “It was my first time playing press coverage in two years, so it was a tough first day. I was on the ground way too many times. But it’s good to have a first day.”
Jones said he felt rusty, but Ochocinco, of course, thinks Jones’ inability to cover him should be interpreted not as a sign of Jones’ rustiness, but about Ochocinco’s greatness.
“I’m going to keep on killing him,” Ochocinco said. “But he’s real good. We’re going to keep going at it. It’s all about the competition and getting better.”
Jones assessed his performance at the start of camp by saying, “I’ve got a lot to work on.”
