Adam “Pacman” Jones showed his generous side by handing out $100 bills to the homeless last week.

The Cincinnati Bengals cornerback gifted 15 vagrants with cash before announcing his next act of benevolence will be to help needy mothers.

In a post on Twitter.com, he writes, “I just give (sic) 15 homeless people a 100 next I’m pay (sic) for 15 mothers bills that’s in need.”

Jones has been known nearly as much for his off-field troubles as he has for his on-field performance.
