Pacman says he’s got deal to return to Bengals

Adam “Pacman” Jones has re-signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, agreeing to a three-year deal, the veteran cornerback announced Thursday morning on Twitter.

Jones, 29, has played the past three seasons for the Bengals after bouncing around from Tennessee to Dallas because of off-field issues. He started five games for the Bengals last season and broke up nine passes. Jones returned a punt 81 yards for a touchdown against Cleveland.

The Bengals gave Jones a second chance in 2010 after several incidents with police and an NFL suspension. He has developed into a reliable nickelback and backup returner for Cincinnati.

Jones is the ninth Bengals free agent to re-sign with the team this offseason, joining defensive ends Michael Johnson, Robert Geathers and Wallace Gilberry, linebacker Rey Maualuga, kicker Mike Nugent, punter Kevin Huber, running back Cedric Peerman and long snapper Clark Harris.

The Bengals are also looking to re-sign offensive tackle Andre Smith and cornerback Terence Newman.
