Welcome to our Dr. Saturday feature titled "Random offseason tweet of the day." With real games still months away, coaches and players will be tweeting about non-football-related things as the season approaches. In this space, we'll try to find the funniest and goofiest tweets of the day. If you see something, don't hesitate to send it to us.
It is not uncommon for coaches to bring in guest speakers to address the team for motivational purposes, to offer valuable advice or to address the importance of having great character. A guy with multiple NFL suspensions usually doesn’t fit the billing, but that apparently won’t stop Tennessee head coach Butch Jones from welcoming Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones to Knoxville.
JONES: We are bringing in Adam Pacman Jones to speak to our team. As many examples you can bring into talk about character.— Tennessee Football (@Vol_Football) May 5, 2014
Butch Jones mentioned at Monday night’s Big Orange Caravan event in Atlanta that he’ll bring Jones in at some point in the offseason.
Jones, who was the sixth overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans out of West Virginia University, was suspended for the entire 2007 season and part of the 2008 season for an incident at a Las Vegas strip club, but he has mostly cleaned up his act in recent years after joining the Bengals in 2010.
He spoke at both the 2012 (where he shared that he once spent $1 million in one weekend) and 2013 NFL Rookie Symposium to offer advice to league newcomers about doing the right things and representing yourself well off the field.
Tennessee also brought in former Ohio State star running back Maurice Clarett in to talk to the team earlier this offseason.
