Adam "Pac-Man" Bernard Jones (born September 30, 1983) is an American cornerback and return specialist who is currently playing for the Cincinnati Bengals. He was drafted in the first round with the sixth-overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. He played college football at West Virginia.

Jones has also played for the Dallas Cowboys. He was suspended from the NFL for the entire 2007 season and for part of the 2008 season for off-the-field conduct.

Jones was born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised by his mother, Deborah Jones, and his grandmother, Christine Jones; his father was murdered when Jones was four years old. As a child growing up in the Sandtown neighborhood of Atlanta, he was coached by longtime Sandtown coach Gary Jones. When Jones was a freshman at West Virginia University, his grandmother died of cancer; Jones missed the only game of his three year college career to attend her funeral. On the day of the NFL Draft, Jones wore a t-shirt that featured his grandmother's picture.
