While it’s no secret that the Titans want nothing to do with suspended corner Adam “Pacman” Jones, it seems that Jones is trying to leverage his way to another team, a team that he has already on one occasion stated he would like to play for – the Dallas Cowboys. Jones spent some time on an Atlanta radio station yesterday, and said that while he want to play, he specifically wants to go to play for the Cowboys.
“I just have to do what I have to do to get back on the field,” he said. “Hopefully it won’t be long and hopefully it will be a couple of more months. I would love to play for the Cowboys, America’s team.”
Would the Cowboys actually be a good fit for Jones? It did wonder for wide out Terrell Owens, who had more than his share of moments of being a huge distraction off the field and on. But Jones is dealing with a lot more than just being a distraction. He’s a criminal, and can’t stay out of trouble, being arrest six times since being selected in the first round by the Titans in 2005.
As today’s Dallas Morning News points out, if the Cowboys don’t have to give up the farm to get him, and then give him a no-risk, incentive-laden deal, he would fill some needs for the team. On the other hand, the Cowboys think right now they are a front-runner for the NFC Title, so they have to be careful on what players they bring into that locker room. With Jones, the risk may not be worth the reward in the end.
