Bengals | Adam Jones moving on, coaching rookies at symposium

Cincinnati Bengals CB Adam Jones wants to move on from his past and feels he should be given the benefit of the doubt at this point, noting sometimes the past has to be in the past. Jones will speak at the NFL Rookie Symposium, which has led to some people questioning the decision in lieu of the recent allegations against him.

"Why would I not keep talking to the youth and help the youth out like I did last year because of somebody else acting up?" Jones said. "My reputation speaks for itself. I'm a good father, a good husband and I'm good in the community, too. I'm not out getting drunk, harassing people and being a (jerk) to people."

"My goal is to just give back to the community and the league and to let them know you're accountable for everything you're doing," Jones said. "There's nobody who's gotten more chances than me and, when you do, when you're back in those situations ... you're always going to be judged by your past, regardless of what anybody says. I just want to try to enlighten some of the guys so they don't have to go through the things I went through."
