Pacman Jones adopted Chris Henry's sons and is now accompanying Chris Jr. on college visits

NFL wideout Chris Henry was taken too soon from this world when he passed away at age 26 back in 2009. He left behind two sons, but an old friend is making sure they still get the wisdom of a football veteran as they carve a hopeful path to the big leagues.

Adam “Pacman” Jones, a 12-year NFL veteran and Henry’s teammate with both the West Virginia Mountaineers, has been helping the Henry family since the untimely death of its patriarch. In 2021, he told Shannon Sharpe he’d legally adopted his best friend’s children. Now Chris Jr., a 6-foot-3 wide receiver prospect who looks almost identical to his father, isn’t just living with Jones. The two are hitting the road together:

Henry Jr. is only a high school freshman, but he already holds scholarship offers from seven different colleges, per 247Sports.com. That includes Power 5 programs like Miami, Ohio State, Penn State and West Virginia. Jones has been his wingman throughout a process that should only get busier and busier as the young teen grows into his playmaking genetics.

Throughout his career, Jones made headlines in the sporting world for his exploits off the field. Now he’s making waves for keeping his commitment to his dead friend’s children.
