Kareem Jackson Caps Endearing Offseason With Porn Party Appearance

In news that is sure to make his employers happy, Kareem Jackson was one of five players to get publicity today for his role as a "featured party host," of what amounts to a pornography expo as the NFL is looking into suing the expo for using pictures of the players in uniform.

While Jackson is, of course, free to do things on his own time, this is his second usage of poor judgement this offseason after he earlier tweeted about cockfighting during a visit to the Dominican Republic. While neither of these events are technically illegal, it still shows poor judgement on Jackson's part to be involved with them to the extent that he is. Jackson later apologized for his appearance on the posters, claiming it was an honest mistake:

"I wanted to clarify an event that took play on May 20th at Club Play in Florida," Jackson wrote in a statement released by his agent Tony Fleming. "I authorized my name to be used at that club with the understanding that it was going to be a party hosted by NFL players.

"It was never explained to me or did I ever authorize my name or likeness to be associated with Exxxotica Expo 2011. I am appalled that my name and likeness were used in that capacity. In addition, I never authorized the use of my likeness or picture in my NFL uniform," Jackson wrote in his statement.

And yes, I did consider making a joke tying cockfighting and a porn expo together. It was terrible. But do feel free to fill in your own punchline on that one, because once you combine it with Jackson's not-so-stellar play last season, you have many different topics to draw from.
