Pacman Jones: Finally a True Victim?

Jones allegedly made it rain more than previously thought in connection with the Vegas shootings that led to his 2007 suspension. Reports are out indicating that the troubled corner had over $15,000 extorted from him by Arvin Kenti Edwards, a man now in custody in connection with the shootings at Vegas’ Harlem Knights strip club.  Apparently Edwards threatened Jones and his family, and went through the former West Virginia star’s friends and relatives in order to secure the payments for “services rendered”.  Jones flew to Seattle earlier to identify Edwards as the gunman and extortioner and continues to maintain that he had no role in the actual shootings whatsoever.

More details in the link, but, all in all, I’d say $15,000 was a bargain under the circumstances, and apparently Jones has been cooperating with the authorities for quite some time now, which is good.  Nevertheless, it seems a bit unclear how this may affect Pacman’s path to being reinstated by the league.  Was this simply “hush money”, or something connected to the investigation, or maybe just money Jones genuinely believed was necessary to ensure his family’s safety?  Regardless, it’ll be interesting to see how all this pans out.

Whatever happens, however, Jones should be able to rest easy tonight knowing that, at least for the immediate future, Santonio Holmes will probably be the juiciest story of the NFL offseason.  A big distraction is just what Pacman needs…
