Longtime NFL defensive back Adam "Pacman" Jones, whose 12-season career was marked as much by controversy off the field as contributions on it, has announced his retirement.

"This is an official letter," Jones says in the video. "It's official that I'm done with the NFL, cuz."

Jones most recently was with the Broncos, playing in seven games in 2018 before being released. .

Jones was taken in the first round (No. 6 overall) by the Titans in the 2005 NFL Draft out of West Virginia.

Over the course of 12 seasons across 14 years (he was suspended one season and sat out another), Jones recorded 508 total tackles (421 solo) and had 17 interceptions, returning two for touchdowns. He played most of his career, eight seasons from 2010-17, with the Bengals.

His breakout second season with the Titans in 2006, when he had 62 combined tackles, eight pass deflections and a career-high four interceptions, was followed the next April by his suspension for one year under the NFL's player conduct policy.

It was part of a career in which he was frequently in and out of trouble with the league.

After commissioner Roger Goodell reinstated Jones in early 2008, the Titans traded him to the Cowboys. After one season in Dallas, he was abruptly released in early 2009.
