 NEW YORK (AP) - Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam ``Pacman'' Jones withdrew the appeal of his suspension Tuesday and will serve the one-year term imposed by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
``I understand my responsibilities to my teammates, the Titans and my fans and I am committed to turning my life around and being a positive member of the NFL,'' Jones said in a statement issued by his agent.
Jones met with Goodell at NFL headquarters Tuesday and was accompanied to New York by agent Michael Huyghue.
``Last week, I asked for an opportunity to meet privately with commissioner Goodell,'' Jones said in the statement. ``I met with him earlier today to tell him about the steps I have taken to change my life since being suspended by the NFL. I accept the discipline that's been imposed on me and I am withdrawing my appeal.''
Goodell suspended Jones on April 10 for a series of off-field episodes. He has been interviewed by police 10 times and been arrested five times since he was drafted in 2005. Jones and his attorneys appealed the suspension May 11. It could be reduced to 10 games if Jones meets all the restrictions set by Goodell.
Huyghue said Jones intended to keep working out and would go back to school, taking courses online from West Virginia University, where he played.
