Adam “PacMan” Jones took on a different role after retiring from the NFL, becoming an adoptive father to his late Cincinnati Bengals teammate Chris Henry’s children.
Last year, in an interview with Shannon Sharpe, Jones revealed that he had adopted both of Henry’s sons, and described them as “freaks when it comes to sports.” And now it is Jones who recently joined Chris Henry Jr. on a scouting trip to the University of Miami.
Last week Henry Jr., a wide receiver in the class of 2026, announced that he has received an offer from Mario Cristobal at the University of Miami. Per 247, Henry Jr. already has seven offers. In addition to Miami, Henry Jr.’s offers include ones from Ohio State — which has been a wide receiver factory in recent years — and West Virginia, where his late father and Jones were also teammates.
When it comes to their family bond, Jones told Sharpe, “We love each other hard,” Jones said. “We cry together, we pray together, we do everything together. We all family.”
In 2009, Chris Henry died at the age of 26, after he fell off the back of a moving pickup truck during a domestic dispute, according to police.
