CINCINNATI — Adam “Pacman” Jones will keep his Bengals stripes for at least another three years.

The 32-year-old cornerback shared his excitement about the deal renewal on Instagram early Wednesday evening, the first day of free agency following the 2015 season.


I am so happy to say that I have agreed to a 3 year deal with the Bengals !!!!

Jones’ re-signing came after former Bengals’ teammate and wide receiver Marvin Jones signed with the Detroit Lions for $8 million per year, according to ESPN.

Safety George Iloka also re-signed with the Bengals Wednesday, with a five-year, $30 million contract, ESPN reported.

The cornerback had 62 tackles and three interceptions during the 2015 season.

He, along with linebacker Vontaze Burfict, were at the center of a controversial moment during the Bengals’ final game of the 2015 season against the Pittsburgh Steelers, when they said they complained to officials that Steelers linebacker coach Joey Porter shouldn’t have been allowed on the field during an injury timeout toward the end of the game.

Jones shoved Porter after a verbal altercation ensued on the field during that timeout.

Jones did not detail the specifics of his contract renewal.
