Bengals will wait to make decision on Pacman’s future

“I’m not going to condemn him, and I’m not going to condone what he did,” Tobin said. “Whether there was anything criminal there or not is to be determined by our criminal justice system, and we’re going to let that work. And if there’s an NFL penalty, that will be determined by the NFL and we’re going to let that work. We’re not going to make any rash, harsh, fast decisions about the future of our football team without all the information.”

Jones’ attorney said he is getting treatment for alcohol and anger issues in the Cincinnati area following the incident in which he allegedly assaulted a security guard and jail nurse and told the arresting officer “I hope you die tomorrow.”

“It was disappointing for us to see him display what he displayed,” Tobin said. “It’s not indicative of who he is, in our opinion. I think Adam is better than that. His status on our team is like a lot of players’ status on our team. He’s got to earn his way like everyone else does. Where this goes, I cannot predict it. But we certainly are not going to make a decision on him without more information than what we have.”
