Report: Cowboys interested in Pacman

Thursday, March 20, 2008 at 10:06pm

Trade talks between the Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys for suspended cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones could be beginning to heat up.

The Dallas Morning News reported on its web site Thursday evening that discussion between the two teams for the troubled cornerback and return man that could involve a late-round pick were taking place.

A league source indicated to The City Paper Thursday evening that talks were taking place involving the possible trade of Jones, but there was no indication as to how far along or serious those negotiations were.

Jones has been suspended since April 10 after a string of off-field incidents that includes six arrests.

However, he now has no more charges pending against him after pleading no contest to a gross misdemeanor in Las Vegas and settling a Georgia case of felony obstruction with an Alford plea.

Jones’ attorney and agent Manny Arora said he had no knowledge of any trade yet being consummated or near completion.

“I have not heard about any deal being completed. There have been talks with a number of teams, such as Dallas and New England,” Arora said. “There is no trade at this time. Right now, I’m more concerned with trying to get him reinstated.”

Jones was told in February that his suspension would be extended and be reviewed sometime before training camps open in July. Arora plans to appeal to Goodell sooner than that.

“I’m hoping to have it heard sometime around the draft,” Arora said. “I don’t know exactly what else they want us to do.”

Jones’ representatives were given permission to seek a trade to find a pool of teams that might be interested in acquiring him and spoke to a number of teams at the NFL Combine.

The Cowboys and Patriots were among the more interested teams in Jones, who can be traded even before his suspension is lifted, if the Titans and the team taking him so chooses.

Wonder if Pacman will be the first in history to have an "arrest" clause in his contract?

This story has been out there for at least a month, good to see McCormick is right on top of it.

This is the reason that the Cowboys are always a contender. Jerry Jones is not an 8 and 8 owner. He understands that winning is the only thing. If Pacman is not in jail or suspended by the NFL he wants him on the field. I hope this trade goes through. If so,it certainly identifies the difference between the two franchises.

frank, you really are a troll.

Lets just hope that the next melee Pacman starts, he is killed in it.I hate stupid people and, unfortunately, Pacman Jones is in my top five.

I'll send the Cowboys and extra $50 if that will seal the deal.

Who else is in the Top Five, NY?IMO, the Cowboys can have Pacman. Lots of strip clubs in Dallas for him to be arrested in.

Well, lets hope Pacman is killed before he has a chance to mess up the Cowboy's reputation.

Frank. You are an idiot. The fact that you think Jerry Jones is a good owner because he wants Pacman is ridiculous. If anything, it shows the Jerry Jones is a moron. And no the Cowboys are not an 8 and 8 team. They are a 5-11, 5-11, 5-11, 10-6 (Choke), 6-10, 9-7, 9-7, 13-4 (Choke) team. Congrats

I could care less about the Cowboys, never have liked them. But if they take Pacman out of Nashville I'll like them just a little bit.

NY, I seem to remember the Cowboys had a snowstorm of white powder around the clubhouse 15-20 years ago. So maybe Pacman has found an appropriate home.This year their quarterback blamed their playoff loss on his girlfriend Jessica 'Chicken of the Sea' Simpson, who whisked him away on a tropical vacation prior to the game. Yep, good place for Pacman.

TNWalker, How many Super Bowls have the Cowboys played? How many Divison titles have the Cowboys won? How do you think the Cowboys got to be called America's team? Why would a city like Houston run the Oilers out of town? I am sure you have the answers. All I know is that Pacman Jones is an outstanding football player. I would not want Pacman Jones as a neighbor or as a member of my club. All I care about are his football talents for 16 weeks a year. Where he is after that is not something I ever think about. What I do know is that the Oilers/Titans have not won a Super Bowl in their almost 45 year history or in my lifetime. They are a tremendous asset to Middle Tennessee but they are not a champion and will never be a champion.

Wow frank, I took up for him until the Vegas deal, but you are still taking up for him? At some point it does matter what a player does off the the field, especially when it involves someone getting shot.

By: Cowboy84 on 12/31/69 at 7:00

If the Cowboys can get both pacman and Chad Johnson they will either win the whole thing or they will implode like an old Las Vegas motel.

TITAN1, welcome home.

By: TITAN1 on 12/31/69 at 7:00

courier37207, don't you have something to say to frank brown?;)

By: courier37027 on 12/31/69 at 7:00

Frank, TITAN1 was once on your bandwagon. Pac's value as measured by field performance only, and disregarding his off field, potentially criminal yet certainly stupid activities was once the rallying cry for TITAN1. Yet he saw the light. Come back into the fold before it is too late.
