Pacman Jones Gets His Appeal In Front Of The NFL

The appeal hearing for Pacman Jones' year-long suspension has been set for May 11 in New York City, according to

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will hear the appeal, which will be in New York City.

Jones first met with Goodell on April 3 to discuss off-field conduct that has included 10 incidents in which he has been interviewed by police with five arrests since the Titans drafted him in April 2005.

A week later, Goodell suspended Jones, and he also suspended Cincinnati receiver Chris Henry for eight games.The cornerback said while at a boxing match April 13 in Tunica, Miss., that he thought the punishment was a little too harsh.

The suspension includes a review of his case after the Titans' 10th game, which could allow for an early return if he meets several requirements.
The Titans drafted Texas safety Michael Griffin and cornerback Ryan Smith of Florida last weekend to help fill the holes in their secondary left by Jones' suspension.
