Pacman Jones traded to the Cowboys, let the circus begin!

Cowboys are giving up this year's 4th round pick for Pac. Jones gets no guarenteed money and he'll have to restructure his contract.

This season's going to be crazy.

Cowboys don't care about character issues

in fact they also want Chad Johnson and they want to somehow move up in the draft so they can get McFadden

Jerry Jones is sort of going with the 70's Raiders approach ( he is good friends with Al Davis) of having troubled players.

T.O.
Tank Johnson
Pacman Jones


It's similiar to the early 90's years when the Cowboys had lots of swagger and a bad boy image.

T.O. turned out to be a steal for the Cowboys. Pacman is a big time player, he sat out for a year, he's hungry and will be on good behaviour.

Cowboys seem to be the team to beat this year but somehow I don't think Romo's going to have half the season he had last year.

Titans agree to send Pacman to Dallas

By TERESA M. WALKER, AP Sports Writer


That is if the cornerback who hasn’t played in the NFL since December 2006 passes a physical.

“He’s a fanatical workout person, so he’ll be in just fine shape,” Jones’ agent, Manny Arora said. “I don’t think that’s going to be an issue.”

Jones’ physical ability never has been a problem. It’s been his behavior away from the football field that finally pushed the Tennessee Titans to trade their top draft pick in 2005, swapping a gifted cornerback and dazzling kick returner for a fourth-round selection this weekend and a sixth-rounder in 2009.

That is if NFL commissioner Roger Goodell lets him actually put on that Cowboys’ uniform and play much this season.

If not, the Titans will have to return a draft pick in 2009 under the terms the teams agreed to Wednesday. The Titans only issued a two-sentence statement confirming the trade, adding that terms had to be finalized and Jones had to pass a physical. Cowboys team spokesman Rich Dalrymple said terms could be announced as early as Thursday.

“What I can confirm is that we have agreed in principle with the Tennessee Titans on a trade that will bring Adam Jones to the Cowboys,” Dalrymple said.

This deal allows the Titans to quit hearing questions about Jones’ latest off-field incident, a chance to do exactly what coach Jeff Fisher has said the team did months ago and move on without him. They won’t miss him—much—on the field. They had a defense that gave up the most yards with Jones in 2006 and the fifth-best in 2007 without him.

The Cowboys are taking a calculated gamble.

Jones can fill two big holes if reinstated this year. Dallas owner Jerry Jones, who twice within the past week had said the talks were stalled, can try to reclaim Jones as he did receiver Terrell Owens and defensive tackle Tank Johnson, who was suspended for parts of 2007.

Arora said Wednesday night they had not been told of the trade by either team, but were cautiously optimistic. Jones has talked often of his desire to play for the Cowboys in recent weeks, even appearing on Michael Irvin’s radio show in Texas.

“We recognize the fact of where we are with regards to the league,” Arora said. “We recognize the fact he’s got a guaranteed contract with Tennessee, and we recognize the fact there’s risks involved at this point. We also recognize there’s significant public relations implications for the teams, and in fact Dallas has to sell tickets, the knowledge their fan base has a point of view.

“With all that in mind, we’ve said from Day 1 we’re willing to rework our contract. Once the trade gets completed or official, we’ll be ready to do our part because we want to play for Dallas. I don’t have any hesitation saying we can get this done and get it done quickly.”

Jones was scheduled for a base salary of $1.74 million in 2008 and had been under contract through 2009 before his suspension.

The first defensive player drafted in 2005, sixth overall out of West Virginia, had been Tennessee’s best defender with his four interceptions coming in 2006. He also led the NFL that year with an average punt return of 12.9 yards and three TDs.

But six arrests and 12 incidents where police were called since being drafted led to his suspension in April 2007 for the 2007 season. Goodell refused to cut it to 10 games and said he wouldn’t consider reinstatement until prior to the opening of training camps after Jones went to another strip club in January.

A return to the Titans never seemed possible, and Jones was given permission to talk to other teams weeks ago. The NFL also barred the cornerback from working out on their property in February.

Goodell said last week in Texas that he would consider reinstating Jones if he continued conducting himself in a way that represents the NFL in a positive manner. How he weighs Jones’ help in identifying the alleged shooter in the February 2007 triple shooting at a Las Vegas strip club remains to be seen.

Police reports surfaced Monday night that said Jones paid $15,000 in the weeks after the shooting to the man, who threatened to hurt the cornerback, his daughter and his mother. Jones picked the man out of a lineup last week, helping fulfill part of the plea deal he agreed to last December reducing two felony counts of coercion to conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct.

Terms of that deal also require him to testify in court as needed.

Associated Press Writer Jeff Carlton in Dallas contributed to this report.

Pacman-to-Cowboys deal still not done...

IRVING, Texas (AP)—The Dallas Cowboys and Tennessee Titans are on the clock with their Adam “Pacman” Jones trade.

How fast that clock is ticking depends on who you talk to.

The deal still wasn’t finalized Friday, two days after the teams agreed in principle and the eve of the NFL draft. The Titans are supposed to get Dallas’ fourth-round pick and another pick next year for the rights to the suspended cornerback.

“Clearly it’s got to be done tomorrow or else it becomes academic,” said Jones’ agent, Manny Arora.

Not so fast, says Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple. He said the teams were still working out details and that the deal didn’t have to be complete before the draft.

The fourth round of the draft isn’t until Sunday.

“There’s no set timetable or anything,” Dalrymple said.

The Titans declined to provide any update Friday on the trade’s progress. On Thursday, general manager Mike Reinfeldt cautioned that it was a complicated deal.

If the Jones deal goes through, the Cowboys still don’t know if he’ll play for them this season. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has said he’ll decide whether to reinstate Jones by training camp in July and that any trade won’t influence him.

Jones has been arrested six times and has been involved in 12 incidents requiring police action since being the top defensive player taken in the 2005 draft. The accumulation led Goodell to suspend Jones for the 2007 season.

If Goodell doesn’t let Pacman return in ‘08, the Cowboys would get back an ‘09 pick. They’re also expected to be giving him a non-guaranteed contract, making it easier to distance themselves from him, if necessary.

The Cowboys were an intriguing draft-day topic before the Jones deal dragged on.

With two first-round picks, owner Jerry Jones could be at his wheeling-and-dealing best. Dallas would like to add a younger but proven receiver to go with aging veterans Terrell Owens and Terry Glenn.
