Bengals free agent CB Adam Jones said in an interview with Pro Football Talk that his agent has been contacted by several teams explaining that he’ll have options if he doesn’t re-sign with Cincinnati.
“As of now, I don’t know, to be honest,” Jones said. “I know a lot of other teams have been contacting my agent saying if I don’t get signed there are other places I can go.”
Jones added that he’s open to signing with any team that wants him and has a good chance to win.
It’s worth mentioning that any team contacting his agent before the legal tampering period would be in violation of league rules. Although, this happens all the time with a number free agents.
Jones previously mentioned that he would like to be back with the Bengals, but there weren’t any talks between the two sides up to that point.
Jones, 32, played out his three-year contract with the Bengals and will be an unrestricted free agent in the coming months. Despite his age, Jones has actually played pretty well for the Bengals, so it will be interesting to see if they’re interested in bringing him back.
In 2015, Jones appeared in 14 games for the Bengals and recorded 62 tackles, one sack, three interceptions, a forced fumble and 12 pass defenses. He also contributed 235 kick return yards and 179 punt return yards. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 16 cornerback out of 118 qualifying players.
