Adam "Pacman" Jones is finally in a comfortable place.

The cornerback has developed into a regular with the Cincinnati Bengals, who gave him a final chance after years of off-field problems and missed opportunities. Jones started five games last season, played in all of them and returned kickoffs and punts.

He's starting to meet those expectations that came with being a first-round pick in 2005. He was repeatedly suspended, missing the entire 2007 season, and he sat out the 2009 season when no NFL team was interested.

Coach Marvin Lewis says Jones has developed into a better student of the game during his three years in Cincinnati. Jones says he's found a comfort zone in the locker room, where he's been able to blend in as just another player.
