CINCINNATI — Cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones has accepted his one-game suspension for an offseason misdemeanor conviction, and teared up on Thursday over the unwavering support he’s received from Bengals owner Mike Brown.

Jones is suspended by the NFL for the season opener as a result of his confrontation with hotel security personal and an obscenity-filled tirade against arresting police officers.

In his first public comments since the suspension, Jones accepted responsibility for his actions and said he’s ready to move on. He began to tear up when asked about Brown’s support, saying he can’t put his gratitude into words.

Bengals players reported on Thursday for the start of training camp. Their first practice is Friday.
