ENGLEWOOD Dustin Hopkins Jersey , Colo. (AP) — As far as the Broncos are concerned, Adam “Pacman” Jones brings experience and energy to Denver but none of the baggage from a long list of run-ins with the law and the league. The Broncos signed Jones to a one-year, $1,015,000 deal over the weekend to bolster their banged-up secondary and their punt return unit. Although Jones’ background includes two dozen games lost to suspension over his 11-year NFL career, coach Vance Joseph vouched for Jones’ character as a player and as a person Monday. “I’ve coached him for two seasons and his football character is A-plus,” said Joseph, who tutored Jones during his best seasons in 2014 and 2015. “He was a team captain for us. He made a Pro Bowl for me. He’s great in meetings, he’s great in the locker room, he’s a great leader. He’s played a long time in this league. “Now, personal character, we all know the background. He would even acknowledge as a young guy he made some mistakes. But he’s paid for every mistake he’s made,” Joseph said. “I mean, this guy has been through a lot in this life Dave Robinson Jersey , and obviously it was his own doings. But he’s paid for those mistakes. “He’s matured, he’s a married (father) of three and he wants to win football games. So, he’s here to help us win football games.” Jones said he’s come to terms with his past transgressions, suggesting “you learn from your mistakes and move on” while also confronting them head-on. “God has blessed me with so many opportunities and I’m one of the ones who doesn’t mind telling kids and people about my stories and the mistakes I’ve made,” Jones said. “I don’t have no shield. My life is a glass life. It’s nothing that I’m hiding from nobody.” Jones said his focus now is on football and family . “And I have three beautiful kids. That’s what life is about for me now,” Jones said. “I’m about to turn 35 and the best thing I can do right now is at least win a playoff game, you know? I haven’t won a playoff game. I’ve been in the league 12 years. So, I’m just trying to win a playoff game and help these guys as much as I can.” “We have a talented group of guys here in the backfield, all around the team. So, I’m not here to try to take no shine. I promise you guys that. I’m here to help and lead in the best way I can.” Joseph said Jones’ addition fills two needs, as a fourth cornerback and a punt returner. He said he met with general manager John Elway and they determined that they needed help in both areas, “and there was one guy that fit the bill. I mean, he solves two issues.” The sixth overall pick of the 2005 draft by the Tennessee Titans, Jones had been out of the NFL since March when the Cincinnati Bengals declined to pick up his $5.5 million contract option after his 2017 season was cut short by a groin injury. He said he never lost hope that he’d continue his pro career that also included a stop in Dallas in 2008. “No DeShone Kizer Jersey , I was never worried,” Jones said. “That’s why I kept working out. But as you saw today, if you’re going to be working at mile high, you’ve got to work out at mile high.” The Broncos traded cornerback Aqib Talib to the Rams in the offseason and signed veteran free agent Tremaine Brock. Jones’ addition was welcome news to star Chris Harris Jr., who said Jones “knows what’s going on out there on the field, he’s played in this system, he knows the checks, he knows everything about it.” Although Jones said he should get up to speed by the season opener against Seattle on Sept. 9, he had a tough time adjusting to the altitude at his first practice. “Hard to breathe around here,” Jones said. “But all in all, I feel good.” Joseph was non-committal about whether Jones or safety Su’a Cravens, who returned to practice Monday after missing most of training camp with a sore knee, will play at Arizona in the Broncos’ exhibition finale Thursday night. Jones’ arrival could spell trouble for cornerback Brendan Langley and punt returner Isaiah McKenzie, two members of last year’s draft class who are on the roster bubble. Nose tackle Domata Peko Jamison Crowder Jersey , who played with Jones in Cincinnati, gave him a tour of team headquarters before practice. “He’s someone that on Sunday you want him on your team,” Peko said. A look at where things stand in the NBA playoff picture, with six days remaining in the regular season: — EAST UPDATE Cleveland rallied from 17 points down in the fourth quarter to beat Washington, which might prove fortunate for both teams. It allowed the Cavaliers to stay No. 3 in the East, and kept Washington in the No. 7 spot – which they might prefer. With Kyrie Irving’s season over, the Boston Celtics don’t look as scary as they once did. And since the Celtics are just about locked into the No. 2 seed, the No. 7 seed might actually look attractive to teams. Milwaukee could have moved into No. 7 on Thursday, but it lost to Brooklyn. — WEST UPDATE Utah’s easy win over the Los Angeles Clippers put the Jazz on the brink of clinching. Minnesota hurt its cause with a loss to Denver and dropped to No. 8 in the Western Conference. It’s still seven teams alive in the race for the final five spots out West. — FRIDAY’S GAMES – Indiana at Toronto: Raptors can set a franchise record for wins in a season (57) and clinch the No. 1 seed in the East. The Pacers almost certainly need a win to have a realistic chance of opening the playoffs at home. – Cleveland at Philadelphia: Winner will be No. 3 in the East when the night ends, loser will be No. 4. – Atlanta at Washington: The Wizards will try to end a three-game losing streak, but John Wall won’t play. – Chicago at Boston: Celtics’ first game since the Irving-is-done news came out. – Miami at New York: Win keeps Heat in the driver’s seat for No. 6 seed and, possibly, a first-round matchup against LeBron James. – New Orleans at Phoenix: Obviously, not a game the Pelicans can waste Patrick Marleau Jersey , not against a team with the NBA’s worst record. – Minnesota at LA Lakers: The Wolves must win Friday to remain in the top eight out West. – Dallas-Detroit, Charlotte-Orlando and Sacramento-Memphis have no playoff implications. — CURRENT BRACKET First-round matchups if the season ended Thursday … East: 1-Toronto vs. 8-Milwaukee, 2-Boston vs. 7-Washington, 3-Cleveland vs. 6-Miami, 4-Philadelphia vs. 5-Indiana. West: 1-Houston vs. 8-Minnesota, 2-Golden State vs. 7-New Orleans, 3-Portland vs. 6-Oklahoma City, 4-Utah vs. 5-San Antonio. — NOTE OF THE DAY This will be the first season since 2000-01 that two teams in the same conference with records above .500 miss the playoffs. It happened to Houston (45-37) and Seattle (44-38) that season, and will happen to two other Western Conference clubs this season. — QUOTE OF THE DAY ”In general, it’s hard to win an NBA game if you don’t put forth an effort – at all.” – Warriors coach Steve Kerr, after Golden State lost by 20 in Indiana.
