Cincinnati Bengals’ cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones has had his court date continued on Monday until Oct. 7.
Jones’ court appearance is from the June 5 altercation outside a bar in downtown Cincinnati. Police said the football player punched a woman after having a brief exchange and assault charges were issued. Jones turned himself in the next day.
The trial will take place after the Bengals host the New England Patriots, but the NFL can hand out its own punishment under the league’s personal conduct policy; however, the NFL has rarely taken any action against a player before the legal process takes place.
It is no known secret that Jones has seen his fair share of legal troubles, and he has been a regular speaker at the NFL rookie symposium to help teach rookies about the consequences of making bad decisions, but Jones expressed having done nothing wrong after the incident on his twitter page:
Just got arrested for protecting myself, I will not let this break me or change what I have work so hard for ….— ADAm Pacman Jones (@REALPACMAN24) June">https://twitter.com/REALPACMAN24/statuses/344128269085470723″>June 10, 2013
If Jones were to miss playing time post-trial due an NFL decision, the Bengals would be without their starting cornerback in nickel packages. With the way the Bengal’s secondary has been playing thus far in the preseason, there wouldn’t be much of a drop in production in a hypothetical Jones absence.
Leon Hall has been the veteran presence on the secondary, and Dre Kirkpatrick has been making huge strides with the team now that he is fully healthy. The Bengals also have veteran Terence Newman who has been splitting time with the second-year corner Kirkpatrick. With the veteran presence and Kirkpatrick’s development, this could be the potential nickel package the Bengals would run if Jones is out, and that is not a bad backup option.

A crazy man? Maybe, maybe not. But James Harrison certainly comes off as crazy, man.
This was a statement of fact -- and one Harrison would in some ways appreciate -- before he became the focal point of Hard Knocks with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Hard Knocks is really good television, by the way.
So is Harrison.

In a slightly amusing — yet derivative — new commercial for Pepsi’s “Are You Fan Enough” campaign, Cincinnati Bengals ginger-haired quarterback Andy Dalton visits the home of some Bengals fans to showcase his new fragrance (not a perfume, says Dalton, so it’s a unisex scent). The new fragrance, simply named “Andy Dalton Fragrance,” contains real […]The post Bengals...
Bengals QB Andy Dalton isn’t really known for his humorous side. You may get a small joke here or there but nothing that would bring you to tears funny. At least we haven’t seen anything on HBO’s Hard Knocks just yet. However, Bleacher Report is reporting a different side to the QB in his new Pepsi commercial.

Hawkins sprained his left ankle while trying to make a catch on Aug. 1, and it was placed in a cast. Coach Marvin Lewis says Tuesday that Hawkins will get the cast off this week so the ankle can be...

It seems like this season of “Hard Knocks” has been more strictly about football than years past. I mean, it’s a show about an NFL team at training camp, so any season is football heavy, but it strikes me that this one is more skewed toward onfield action than other season. Not sure if that is simply because the Bengals are boring or if NFL Films is perhaps less willing to...
Over the past decade, we’ve seen dominate teams rise from young rosters and star quarterbacks. As the NFL has become a more pass-centric league, there’s no reason that should stop.
Right now, the dominate teams in the NFL seem to be the usual suspects. The Patriots, Broncos, Saints, Packers and the Steelers are all led by veteran stars that carry their teams. Other teams like...
