The Titans, Jones and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling worked out an arrangement Friday night in which the player would be part of the pay-per-view show ``Hard Justice.'' The deal was approved Saturday, and a temporary injunction prohibits Jones from doing anything in which he could hurt himself.
``No wrestling, and the order says that,'' said Steve Underwood, the Titans chief operating officer. ``What we were interested in was avoiding any significant injury.''
On Friday, the Tennessee Titans took out a restraining order barring Jones from participating in the show in any way, even as a spectator or announcer. The Titans cited a contract that prevents him from engaging in activities in which he could injure himself.
Jones' lawyer contacted the Titans, and attorneys for all three met for about six hours Friday and worked out the deal allowing Jones to take part in TNA.
``He wanted to put on a show and he had prepared himself to put on a show,'' Jones' attorney Worrick Robinson said. ``His role has changed.''
Jones was suspended by the NFL for a year because of repeated conduct violations since being drafted in 2005.
