STATEMENT FROM THE TENNESSEE TITANS
Regarding Adam Jones
“In June we stated that we didn’t expect to comment on Adam Jones until his suspension was complete. Regrettably, we feel it necessary to explain our action today.
“Today we filed a motion in Williamson County asking for a court order preventing Jones from participating in any wrestling activity. All NFL players have language in their contracts that prohibit them from engaging in activities ‘which may involve a significant risk of personal injury.’ We certainly believe wrestling to be hazardous and it is obvious from the player’s conduct that he is ignoring this aspect of his agreements with the club. As an organization, we feel it is our obligation to protect our rights in this instance.”
