Stat of the Day

24 – The total number of suspended games NFL commissioner Roger Goodell handed out to Adam PacmanJones of the Tennessee Titans and Chris Henry of the Cincinnati Bengals Tuesday for their multiple arrests and numerous violations of the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Jones will miss the entire 2007 season and give up his 2007 base salary of $1,292,500 while Henry will be suspended for eight games and forfeit potentially $230,294.12, if the Bengals have their bye week after Week 8.

Henry was arrested four times in a 14-month period, already receiving a two-game league suspension early last season and two benchings from coach Marvin Lewis. Jones joins a list of just six others in NFL history to be suspended for the entire year; all of the previous season-long suspendees were doing time for either gambling or substance abuse, the last being Ricky Williams in 2006 for substance abuse, who just applied for reinstatement in the league.
