NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have asked a court to prohibit suspended cornerback Adam ``Pacman'' Jones from participating in wrestling.
Jones is scheduled to make his debut with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling on Sunday in a pay-per-view event titled ``Hard Justice.''
Citing their contract with Jones, the team said it asked a Tennessee court to intervene in order ``to protect our rights in this in this instance.''
``All NFL players have language in their contracts that prohibit them from engaging in activities 'which may involve a significant risk of personal injury,''' said a statement from team spokesman Robbie Bohren. ``We certainly believe wrestling to be hazardous, and it is obvious from the player's conduct that he is ignoring this aspect of his agreements with the club.''
The Titans cornerback was suspended by the NFL for a year because of several legal scrapes since being drafted in 2005.
Worrick Robinson, an attorney for Jones, didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment. Jones' agent, Michael Huyghue, said he couldn't comment until later in the day. TNA Wrestling declined to comment.
The court clerk's office in Williamson County, where the Titans filed their petition, said the documents would be available later Friday.
The new legal problem emerged for Jones just hours after he resolved one of his least serious issues when a judge dismissed three traffic citations Friday.
He still faces felony coercion charges in connection with a Feb. 19 fight and triple-shooting at a Las Vegas strip club. Jones also faces a felony charge of obstruction stemming from a physical altercation in February 2006 with an officer on patrol in Fayetteville, Ga., but no trial date has been set.
