``He wants to prove he's the best team sport athlete. You can take that for what it's worth. He's looking forward to coming in and wrestling,'' Total Nonstop Action Wrestling co-founder Jeff Jarrett said Monday. ``He wants to concentrate on the tag-team aspect of wrestling.''
Jones, who has rarely talked to the media for months, did not attend the news conference as promised. Jarrett said Jones' daughter had arrived from Atlanta on Sunday and the player was with her.
NFL contracts prohibit nonfootball activities that could cause injury. Jones' agent, Michael Huyghue, said last week he had talked with the Titans about Jones' plans with TNA. The agent said Jones would not be wrestling. A response from the Titans was not immediately available.
Jones was suspended in April for the 2007 season by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for repeated conduct violations. He dropped his appeal of that punishment in June.
