Adam “Pacman” Jones almost had a job to make it snow with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League.
The often-in-trouble cornerback was released by the Dallas Cowboys and was reportedly close to signing with the Bombers until the team changed its mind.
Winnipeg’s interest in Pacman did allow for this gem of an interview to happen:
Jones also talks about his desire to get back to the NFL, saying he’d like to play in Buffalo but not Tennessee.
“I wouldn’t mind for it to be the Titans, but I doubt it. Buffalo, that’s where it’s at baby.”
He said he has a clause in his contract with the Blue Bombers that will allow him to leave if an NFL team comes calling.
“I actually got two calls today, so if they tell me tomorrow that Pacman’s back, that would be a bummer for Winnipeg fans. At least I’d like come out and play one game.”
Jones talks about his preference to wear the number 9, 2 or 5. Later he says he wouldn’t mind 21, which is the number he wore with the Dallas Cowboys.
He also talks about the weather.
“They told me it’s cold as hell. Is it colder than Buffalo?” he asks a fan. “If it ain’t colder than Buffalo then I’ll be alright. Pain is only temporary.”
Who knew Buffalo was “where it’s at?”
