Wrestling program contacts Pacman
Suspended Titans probably won't enter ring, though
By JIM WYATT
Pacman Jones might be suspended from the NFL, but no one said anything about pro wrestling.
The latest twist in the soap opera involving Jones looks like it will include the controversial Titans cornerback being involved in professional wrestling. Doing flips off the ropes to pin an opponent or even taking part in the action probably won't be a part of his role, however, his attorney said Sunday night.
Worrick Robinson, who represents Jones, said his client has been approached by Total Nonstop Action Wrestling "to participate in their line of entertainment.''
But Robinson said Jones "won't be wrestling'' and he won't be playing the part of a villain as some might expect.
"Pacman is talking with TNA at this time and we expect an announcement to be made in the next several days,'' Robinson said. "It is not anticipated that he'll be wrestling, but discussions are taking place for him to have some role in their profession. But details have not be finalized.''
Jones was suspended by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on April 10 for an accumulation of off-field incidents, and his request to take part in the team's training camp was denied last week.
Robinson said Jones has had a number of discussions with TNA, but described any involvement Jones would have as "a short-term thing.''
Former Titans tight end Frank Wycheck took part in a TNA event in June, when he was joined by Titans defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch.
"Pacman remains dedicated to returning to the Titans and any other interests are just that, interests,'' Robinson said.
