Adam "Pacman" Jones was teammates with the late Chris Henry in college at West Virginia. The two became close friends during that time and entered the NFL together in 2005. Jones was drafted by the Titans and Henry the Bengals.
In December of 2009, at just 26, Henry was killed when he was thrown from a truck driven by his then fiancee. The two had been in an argument. It was later revealed that Henry had CTE at the time of his death. He was the first active player to have been diagnosed with CTE, which is caused by repeated blows to the head.
Henry left behind two sons, Chris Jr. and DeMarcus. They've both been adopted by his former teammate and close friend Pacman Jones. Both of his kids are on their way to success football careers.
Chris Jr. has already received seven scholarship offers, including five from Power 5 schools. He's only 14. Along for the recruiting visits has been his father's best friend.
Had a great time at @WVUfootball camp today, really enjoyed competing and getting better. Can't wait to come back! @REALPACMAN24 @WCHSWolvesFB @CamNewton7v7 @NealBrown_WVU @Tony_TDUB @CoachLesley_WVU @WVUFBRecruiting pic.twitter.com/k3TvOgfkRI

Pacman is far from perfect, but this is an awesome move. He also knows what to do and what not to do in order to play football at the highest level.
