Adam Jones is trying to show people he has turned a new leaf and his troubled past is just that: the past. How is he doing this other than behaving? He decided to scrap his “Pacman” nickname and be called by his official name, Adam Jones.
Jones said he decided to shed the nickname to distance himself from his troubled past.
I don’t get it. His nickname had nothing to do with his past at all. In fact, according to historical data, his mother gave him the nickname because when he was a young boy he ate everything in sight. He gobbled up food like Pacman gobbled up power pellets.
This is one lame attempt to show redemption. However, Adam Jones has shown promising progress in his return to the NFL as a cornerback for the Dallas Cowboys. He is impressing teammates and practicing hard. Everyone certainly has been excited about his effort so far proving more and more that the Cowboys stole this prime former first-round pick talent away from the Titans.
