Suspended Titans CB Adam “Pacman” Jones is trying hard to get back into the league, and reports say that on Tuesday he will officially apply for reinstatement into the NFL, hoping to get on a field near you in 2008. Jones didn’t play a down in 2007, as commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him for the entire season for his off the field actions. After a lot of back and forth, Jones has already put out feelers that he is confident that Goodell will let him play again.
“Just from a logical perspective, I remain optimistic that next week will be the week,” Manny Arora, Jones’ agent told the Star-Telegram. “That’s the last week before the draft, and most teams are going to want to be set.” There have been a lot of reports about Jones getting back into the league, and then being moved from the Titans to the Dallas Cowboys, a team that he’s been stating he wants to play on for the past few months.
The agent said that a deal to move Jones would likely be a league minimum deal that would be loaded with incentives, and that Jones is well aware that his next screw up will be his last, because his next screw up will mean he’s out of the league forever. “The risk is minimal because he knows this is his last shot,” Arora told the paper. “You have a motivated player, and a team paying rock-bottom prices. Whether (the Titans get) a fourth or a fifth-round pick, what’s the difference?”
