If anyone should know about the pitfalls of playing in the NFL, it should be Adam "Pacman" Jones.

That's why the NFL asked the Cincinnati Bengals cornerback to speak at the rookie symposium this year. Jones will be part of several panel discussions at the symposium June 25 to 28 in Cleveland.

Jones has been arrested at least six times during his career and was suspended by the league for the 2007 season and six games in 2008 due to off-field infractions.

"The message is, this is not a joke. At the end of the day you have to treat it like a business," Jones told "And you're a business owner, and every decision you make is a reflection of you."
