NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam ``Pacman'' Jones will make an appearance on a pro wrestling show Thursday after signing a contract with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, the company said Monday.
Jones' first in-ring appearance will be for its iMPACT! show on Spike TV, TNA said. He also will appear in a pay-per-view show Sunday at Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla.
``I am a big fan of wrestling, so I wanted to give it a try,'' Jones said in a statement. ``I respect wrestling and I'm not coming in like it's just a show. I want to prove that I am the greatest team-sport athlete.''
Jones' NFL contract prohibits non-football activities that could cause injury.
Jones was suspended in April for the 2007 season by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for conduct detrimental to the league. He dropped his appeal of that punishment in June.
He has been arrested six times since being drafted by the Titans in April 2005, including June 22 when he turned himself in on two felony counts of coercion in a Las Vegas strip club fight that left a man paralyzed.
Jones' bid to join the Titans in training camp was denied by the NFL on July 26. His case will reviewed after the Titans' 10th game, which is Nov. 19.
