Adam 'Pacman' Jones

Veteran NFL cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones announced his retirement on social media after 12 years in the league .

"I'm content," Jones told ESPN's Josina Anderson Friday. "I had a hell of a run doing it. I'm at the point where I didn't feel I would be top level if I tried to play now. I'm happy and I'm looking forward to spending more time with my family and the kids."

Jones, 35, appeared in seven games for the Denver Broncos last season, making two starts. He had 1 interception, 3 passes defensed and 9 tackles. He also returned 10 punts and four kickoffs for Denver.

Before joining the Broncos, Jones spent eight seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, earning a first-team All-Pro nod in 2014 and receiving a Pro Bowl selection in 2015.

Jones became known as much for his run ins with the law as his presence on the field over the years, but turned his career around while with the Bengals.

He was suspended for the entire 2007 season after multiple arrests and an incident in a Las Vegas nightclub that resulted in a man being paralyzed. Jones was later ordered to pay $12 million in damages to the victim.

He was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the first round of the 2005 draft and played one season for the Dallas Cowboys in 2008.
