Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher said Thursday he has no issues with Adam “Pacman” Jones going on a Dallas radio station and campaigning to play for the Cowboys.
Jones, still serving a suspension since last April for a string of off-field incidents, has said several times, most recently in an interview this week with Cowboys Hall of Famer Michael Irvin on WESN-FM in Dallas that he wanted to play in Dallas.
Fisher said he is OK with Jones’ statements because his representatives were given permission to seek a trade, something first reported by The City Paper in its Feb. 27 edition.
“We’ve given them permission to look for a new home and whatever happens after that happens,” Fisher said. “He’s entitled to his opinion. I know he has enjoyed the time he spent here on the football field. But because of his choices, as such off the field, he’s created a situation where he’s going to have to look elsewhere.”
The Cowboys are the frontrunner to land Jones, but the two sides still must agree on compensation to complete a deal. The New England Patriots and Detroit Lions also had shown some interest in obtaining Jones.
Jones, the sixth pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, does not have to be reinstated to be traded away, but reinstatement would increase his trade value.
