Adam 'Pacman' Jones will take a plea deal which will get him a year's probation in exchange for testimony about a shooting that took place during his Las Vegas strip club brawl, the AP reports. Pacman will plead no contest to conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct and receive a suspended one-year sentence.

In addition, Jones must complete 200 hours of community service, attend anger management classes and submit to random drug testing. "While I think we would've been successful at trial, it could've been six months, and he may have lost another year of [NFL] eligibility," said Jones attorney. Pacman's counsel has declined to say whether Jones knows the identity of the gunman who shot three people during the brawl, paralyzing one. (More NFL stories.)
