    NFL suspends Pacman Jones, Bengals' Henry

    NFL.com (April 10, 2007) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has informed Adam Jones of the Tennessee Titans and Chris Henry of the Cincinnati Bengals that they have been suspended without pay for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy and engaging in conduct detrimental to the league on numerous occasions, the NFL announced.

    Jones was suspended for the 2007 season, while Henry was suspended for the first eight games of the 2007 regular season. Each player must earn the right to be reinstated.

    "We must protect the integrity of the NFL," Commissioner Goodell said. "The highest standards of conduct must be met by everyone in the NFL because it is a privilege to represent the NFL, not a right. These players, and all members of our league, have to make the right choices and decisions in their conduct on a consistent basis."

    In a letter to each player, Commissioner Goodell wrote: "Your conduct has brought embarrassment and ridicule upon yourself, your club, and the NFL, and has damaged the reputation of players throughout the league. You have put in jeopardy an otherwise promising NFL career, and have risked both your own safety and the safety of others through your off-field actions. In each of these respects, you have engaged in conduct detrimental to the NFL and failed to live up to the standards expected of NFL players. Taken as a whole, this conduct warrants significant sanction."

    Jones will be strictly monitored by the Titans and the NFL during the suspension as part of his opportunity to earn reinstatement through adherence to a set of conditions. His status will be reviewed after the Titans' 10th regular-season game to determine the extent to which he has complied with the conditions and whether the suspension should be affected by the disposition of any pending or prospective charges.

    The specific conditions that apply to Jones' suspension include the following:


    He must have no further adverse involvement with law enforcement.
    He must fully cooperate with all required counseling, education, and treatment assigned under league or court-ordered programs.
    He must adhere to the restrictions on his activities that have been agreed to by he and the Titans.
    He may not be at the Titans' facility through May 31 and may not participate in any practices or organized workouts during the term of the suspension. Beginning June 1, he must visit the team facility once each week to meet with the team's player development director. Also, beginning June 1, he is permitted to spend one day a week at the team facility for conditioning, film study, and other similar activities.
    In conjunction with the team's player development director and other professionals working with him, Jones must develop with the Titans a structured program of community service or other activity. This program must be submitted to the league office for review and approval.
    Henry will be reinstated after the Bengals' eighth regular-season game if he meets certain conditions during his suspension that will be monitored closely by the Bengals and the NFL. Those conditions include the following:


    He must have no further adverse involvement with law enforcement.
    He must fully cooperate with all required counseling, education, and treatment assigned to him under league programs.
    He is eligible to be at the Bengals' facilities during the rest of the offseason for customary activities and he must meet weekly with the team's player development director.
    If he fully complies with all other conditions, he may participate in the Bengals' training camp and preseason games.
    During the regular season, he is permitted to be at the Bengals' facility for team meetings and must meet weekly with the team's player development director, but he may not attend or participate in practice.
    He must fully comply with all conditions imposed on him by any court, including requirements of community service.
    Jones and Henry were told that any failure to comply with these conditions will result in additional discipline, including possible banishment from the league.

    "I must emphasize to you that this is your last opportunity to salvage your NFL career," Commissioner Goodell wrote to Jones and Henry. "I urge you to take full advantage of the resources available to support you in that effort."
    This is so stupid! How come Pacman Jones is out for the year but Chris Henry is only out for 8 games. Someone is picking sides.

    I just feel that both Pac-Man and Henry have had so many second chances that they shouldn't get this second chance. Yes the whole season and 8 games is alot but not for how many crimes they have committed.lol They're both lucky I'm not the commish of the NFL.lol

    I agree 100% , I mean in a regular job you get convicted or questioned for so many crimes your fired so this is kinda being soft. But even with these huge suspensions the crimes wont stop. Maybe they gave Henry a smaller suspension because he was already suspended for a incident, I think its pretty funny though i hate both players .

    Both of them have had multiple offenses so it's not like this is their first time screwing up. They both should be gone for the year...but I guess we should be grateful that Goddell at least did something to punish them

    the suspensions are fair in respect to each other
    they arent long enough overall but they make sense if this is the new standard they r setting
    Henry has been arrested for possession of marijuana, driving w/out a liscense, aggravated assault w/a firearm, DUI, and providing alcohol to a minor (whew tht is a lot)

    Pacman Jones has been arrested for assault, felony vandalism, failing to report to a probation officer, disorderly conduct, public intoxication, assault (again), obstruction of justice, and possible marijuana possession
    but on top of tht he is essentially an accesory to murder and attempted murder

    sidenote - both come from WVU, somethin to think bout

    i think Jones charges r more serious
    not to be his defender but Chris Henry has just done a bunch of stupid things while Jones has done things tht he meant to hurt people. Henry doesnt seem to have tht intent

    if this is the NFLs new policy, they need to stick wit it and keep administering punishments instead of lettin people slide

    Ok but Chris Henry has had many chances to straighten up/wise up and he hasn't. He is a piece of garbage and really should be thrown out of the NFL. As for Pac-Man I feelt he same way about him to. They don't deserve to play in the NFL. The new commish makes me sick. That dude can kiss my ***.
