Pacman one half of 'Posterboyz' duo; NFL scrutinizes label name

8/15/2007 - NFL Adam Jones Tennessee Titans + more

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Suspended Titans cornerback Adam
"Pacman" Jones
is not expected to play in the NFL this season, so
he keeps looking for new ways to stay busy.

First there was wrestling, now it's hip-hop.

His National Street League Records, based in Atlanta, announced
Wednesday that Jones will team with producer Spoaty in a duo called
Posterboyz with their first single "Let it Shine" being released
Aug. 27. The song talks about big money, cars and jewelry.

This latest venture might cause more problems for Jones with the
National Football League. Officials are looking into whether or not
the record label's name, National Street League Records, infringes
on the league's trademark, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said.

Jones has been suspended from the NFL for the 2007 season for
violating the league's personal conduct policy by being arrested
six times. Police records for various incidents in Tennessee and
Georgia show five different arrests for the former first-round
draft pick.

His sixth arrest came in June when he was booked by Las Vegas
police in the most serious case. He is under indictment there on
two felony counts of coercion stemming from a February fight at a
strip club that left a bouncer, a former wrestler himself,
paralyzed.

A felony obstruction of an officer charge was postponed until
this fall in Georgia, and misdemeanor charges of public
intoxication and disorderly conduct were revived in July and
postponed until January.

Jones also has signed a contract with Total Nonstop Action
Wrestling and debuted in a pay-per-view last weekend under a
temporary injunction negotiated between the team, TNA and Jones'
attorneys to limit his chances of physical injury.
