NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans cornerback Adam ``Pacman'' Jones has filed his appeal of a season-long suspension and a hearing with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell should be held within the next two weeks, a league spokesman said Monday.
Jones said earlier this month he planned to appeal and NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed Monday that Jones' letter arrived at league offices over the weekend.
``He will have a full opportunity to present his case,'' Aiello said.
The hearing of his appeal was being scheduled and it should be held sometime within the next two weeks.
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.
Attorneys representing Jones did not immediately return telephone messages left by The Associated Press on Monday. They will be able to accompany Jones when he appeals his suspension.
``The player can have representation and present whatever information that they deem appropriate,'' Aiello said.
The Titans drafted Texas safety Michael Griffin and cornerback Ryan Smith of Florida over the weekend to help fill the holes in their secondary left by Jones' suspension.
