Bengals owner Mike Brown said CB Adam Jones will remain with the team.
Jones is facing league disciple for his January arrest, but the Bengals have no plans to move on from him. "I’m going to give him a chance," said Brown. "I hope it comes out right for him, for his family and for us. I know there are critics. But that's a full answer. And that’s what I have to say about it." 34-year-old Jones is set to make $8.16 million this season. He's signed through 2018. Apr 1 - 5:40 PM

ESPN's Katherine Terrell believes the "most likely scenario" is RCB Adam Jones remains with the Bengals this season.

Jones had a felony charge against him dropped Wednesday, but he still faces three misdemeanors and likely discipline from the league. The fact the Bengals have stuck by Jones this long suggests they will keep him another year, but that could change if he is suspended or 2016 first-rounder William Jackson III earns a starting job in camp. Cincinnati would save over $6.8 million against the cap by releasing Jones, who has two years left on his deal.

Bengals RCB Adam Jones had felony charges of harassment with a bodily substance dropped on Wednesday.

Jones was arrested for spitting on a jailhouse nurse in January. He's not out of hot water yet, as Jones still faces misdemeanor charges of assault, disorderly conduct, and obstructing official business. Even entering his age-34 season, Jones remains an effective player.

Bengals CB Pacman Jones has been granted a continuance in his assault case to March 23.

That's two weeks after the start of free agency. Jones isn't headed to the open market, but it means the team will have to decide his Bengals future with incomplete information. Cutting Jones, who is going on 34, would clear up $6.8 million in cap space. Jones did remain reasonably effective in 2016.
Feb 9 - 3:17 PM

The Bengals have not yet decided on the future of RCB Adam Jones, who was arrested on four charges in Cincinnati earlier this month.

Jones is facing a felony harassment charge with a bodily substance after allegedly spitting on a nurse, in addition to misdemeanor charges of assault, disorderly conduct, and obstructing police. Jones has a lengthy history of league-policy violations and could face NFL discipline. Cutting Jones before June 1 would save the Bengals $6.8 million against the salary cap.
Jan 26 - 10:25 PM

Bengals CB Adam Jones was arrested on four charges including assault early Tuesday morning in Cincinnati.

The offseason is officially here! Jones is charged with assault, disorderly conduct, obstructing official business, and harassment with a bodily substance after allegedly pushing a man and poking him in the eye before refusing to enter the police car, kicking and head-butting an officer, and spitting on the hand of a nurse while he was being booked. It is a disappointing development for Jones, who was suspended for all of 2007 for several off-field incidents but had been on the straight-and-narrow for several years. Jones remains an effective corner, but he will turn 34 early next season and is owed $6.8 million in salary and bonuses. It would not be a surprise if the Bengals decide to move on.

Jan 3 - 8:12 AM

Bengals re-signed CB Adam Jones to a three-year contract.

"Pacman" was one of the 3-4 best cornerbacks left on the market. Jones made it clear he was seeking top dollar, but he's getting it from the team that helped save his career. He drew heavy interest during the "legal tampering" period. Going on 33, Jones was one of the league's best corners last season, though his devastating penalty in the Wild Card round helped send the Bengals home early. Even as a tenured veteran, Jones remains a high-risk, high-reward player.

The Jets have dropped out of the running for free agent CB Adam Jones.

This leaves the Dolphins, Vikings, Ravens, and Browns as teams known to have reached out to Jones since the negotiating period began. Jones seems set to leave Cincinnati after playing a major role in the club's January meltdown.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports free agent CB Adam Jones and Dolphins DC Vance Joseph "are tight."

Joseph joined the Dolphins this offseason after serving as the Bengals' DBs coach the last two years. Jones' market has been hot to this point, but his connection with Joseph could give Miami the upper hand. Jones has also been linked with the Vikings, Jets, Ravens and Browns.

ESPN's Ben Goessling reports the Vikings contacted free agent CB Adam Jones on Monday.

Jones' market has been hot, with the Vikings, Jets, Dolphins, Ravens, and Browns all linked since the tampering window opened. Jones played for Vikings coach Mike Zimmer in Cincinnati along with free agent safeties George Iloka and Reggie Nelson. Minnesota also reportedly contacted Iloka's and Nelson's representatives, but it is difficult to see the Vikings investing at the top of the safety market after giving starter money to Andrew Sendejo over the weekend.

A source told the Miami Herald the Dolphins "have a legitimate chance" to land free agent CB Adam Jones.

Jones is tight with new Dolphins DC Vance Joseph, who coached defensive backs in Cincinnati when Jones played there. Other reports have linked Jones to the Ravens and Browns. In Miami, Jones would take over as the Dolphins' starter opposite Byron Maxwell. Brent Grimes has been informed of his release.

PFT's Mike Florio reports the Ravens are interested in free agent CB Adam Jones.

Jones has also drawn interest from the Browns and Dolphins since the "legal tampering" period opened Monday afternoon. Jones is entering his age-33 season, but has enjoyed plenty of success the past couple years in Cincinnati. He's looking to cash in one more time. Baltimore is desperate for cornerback help after its secondary was picked apart much of last season.

The Browns have expressed interest in free agent CB Adam Jones.

"Pacman" knows new Cleveland coach Hue Jackson from the Bengals' coaching staff. Joe Haden had a concussion-ruined 2015, while RCB Tramon Williams is coming off a mostly-solid year. Jones was the Bengals' best cornerback in 2016, but he is going on age 33 and was involved in the club's playoff meltdown.

Free agent CB Pacman Jones expects to draw interest from the Dolphins.

Jones is connecting the same dots as everyone else, as the Dolphins hired Bengals DBs coach Vance Joseph as defensive coordinator. "I would think V.J. would be interested," Jones said. "He's taught me a lot and he knows I know everything in the system. He knows I'm a football guy. If I'm a betting man, I would think he'd try to bring me in there." Yahoo's Charles Robinson has reported the Cowboys could also be interested. Jones would be an excellent fit for the Dolphins, who had one of the league's worst secondaries in 2015.

Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson reports the Cowboys could be eyeing free agent CB Adam Jones as a replacement if they release Brandon Carr.

Owner Jerry Jones has already admitted Carr is a release candidate, made obvious by his $13.8 million cap number. Jones is far more effective, and would possibly come cheaper than Carr's currently scheduled $9.1 million salary. However, Jones has indicated he'll go to the highest bidder, and cornerbacks have gotten paid in recent years. Jones is near the top of a thin free agent crop.
