There comes a point when people should realize they have a problem. When your drug dealer is worried about your drug use and career, it has probably reached that point. (As is walking around with $81,000 in cash in a garbage bag only to pour it on a stripper â€œfor the effectâ€ also qualifies)
In March, 2006 Metro Police announced some major drug arrests. A lot of the evidence for the arrests was from conversations police had taped with different dealers. Although Jones faced no charges in connection with the investigation, his name was mentioned in the taped recordings.
Jones’ buddy convicted drug dealer Darryl Moore was the center of the investigation and now his conversations may be very telling of Jones’ own problems.
“We gotta slow down, man. We gotta get him focused on football, man. He’s focused on too much other s****,” Moore said.
Moore, a convicted Felon now facing another round of hard time, actually worried Jones was spiraling out of control.
Moore said he cared about his friend and how all of his habit could affect his career.
“You know, I was talkin’ to him the other day about smokin’, and he was like â€˜man, if I didn’t smoke I couldn’t take all the stress that I’m dealing with right now,’” Moore said.
Moore also talked about Titans Head Coach Jeff Fisher who he said visited Jones at home.
“Fisher’s being as patient as a m*****f***** as he can. Fisher gotta win. Fisher trying to win…He ain’t putting up with that s***,” Moore said.
The Titans have said in the past they’ve talked to Jones. Lawyers and judges have certainly counseled him as well.
“He gotta concentrate on season…that ******* drug test coming up,” he said. “We telling him he needed 33 days before he took his ******* test; dry-out, and he didn’t…that’s let me know right there that he ain’t taking his ****** job serious.”
Unbelievebale. This sums up just about everything people hate about pro-athletes and really no one in his personal life aside from his drug dealer is telling him he has a problem or at least trying to do anything to help him.
