PFT: Bengals to Sign Pacman Jones

Take this with an enormous grain of salt considering the same source once reported that Pacman Jones had agreed to terms with the Lions, but Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Bengals are going to ink Jones to a deal.  Like I said, consider the source, but it would make sense since Jones worked out for the Bengals today for the second time this offseason.  If a move were to happen involving Jones, you would think it'd be shortly after a workout of this nature.

It's very interesting that this reported signing comes just days after Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis made a comment that seemed to suggest his team wasn't all that interested in Jones.

"Adam’s agent can’t help but speak with him since he calls quite a bit," Lewis said. "That would be a true statement that Adam made. I have not spoke with Adam but his agent does call and we have returned the call. We’ll see what happens. If somebody we feel can help us then we’ll continue to look."

Cincinnati had been reported as not being interested in Jones earlier in the offseason, and then Lewis' comment gave the impression that the Bengals were simply being courteous by listening to calls that came in.  Things moved quickly after Lewis made that comment, though, because just days later Jones was in Cincinnati and is now apparently set to join the team.  I suppose we will have to see if this turns out to be true or not, but if it does and Jones becomes a Bengal, I guess I will have to take back my statement about the Lions being able to wait to make a move with Pacman.  I figured they would be able to take their time, but it looks like the Bengals may have beaten them to the punch.  Then again, the Lions may not have been interested anyways, so this may be an irrelevant development to the front office if that is the case.
