Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones speaks to Vols football team

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — NFL cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones spoke to the Tennessee football team on Wednesday, according to a tweet from the athletic department.

Jones played at West Virginia, where Vols coach Butch Jones was once an assistant.

Pacman is one of several speakers the coach brings in during the offseason.

Considered one of the league’s top cornerbacks, Pacman might be better known for his off-field issues. But Butch Jones said that makes him a compelling speaker.

“It’s all about character education and really developing individuals to be men,” Butch Jones said to media earlier this month at a Tennessee caravan event. And really it’s all facets of life. I’ve known Adam Jones for a very long time. … I know every year he speaks at the NFL rookie symposium and has done a tremendous job. I’m very proud of how far Pacman has come.”
