The Bengals signed Marvin Lewis to a two-year deal through the 2019 season. Lewis is the NFL’s second-longest tenured coach, behind only Bill Belichick of the Patriots.
In a video released yesterday by Cincinnati police, Bengals cornerback Adam Jones went on a tirade against an arresting officer, shouting profanities and racial slurs from the back of the police car after a January 3 incident for which he is facing multiple charges. Jones apologized when he was released from jail earlier this month, and expects everything will be dismissed. A grand jury hearing is scheduled for February 10.
Bengals cornerback Adam Jones was arrested early Tuesday morning in Cincinnati’s Central Business District and charged with three misdemeanors and a felony, according to a report from The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Per the report, Jones was initially arrested for the misdemeanors – assault, disorderly conduct and obstructing official business. Later, he was charged with felony harassment with a bodily substance of the medical staff at the Hamilton County justice center.
According to complaints obtained in the report,
The Cincinnati Bengals endured a terrible 2016 season that saw them finish third in the division and miss out on the playoffs for the first time since 2010. Marvin Lewis is one of the longest-tenured head coaches in the league, and he’s had success in Cincinnati, but there have been rumors swirling that the two sides may part ways in 2017.
That doesn’t seem to be happening, though.
