Adam Jones has been tyring to play it safe in order to be able to get back on the field and play with his new team, the Dallas Cowboys. He will take that hope another step further on Thursday when he submits a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell asking for full reinstatement.
The Dallas Morning News is reporting that Jones will submit the letter, and should have an answer before the start of the season. “I’m feeling real good,” Jones told the newspaper in reference to his letter. “It’s just a letter why I feel I should be reinstated. It’s my chance to respond and we’ll see how it goes.”
Right now the troubled corner is able to practice with the team and play in the preseason games, but has yet to know for sure if he’ll be able to take the field for the Cowboys when they play opening day in Cleveland vs the Browns on September 7th. “This limited reinstatement is a step in the process,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “Adam is aware of the things that need to be done in order to take the next step.”
Jones did play vs the Chargers this past weekend, and made one tackle. Jones has been arrested six times and has been involved in 12 incidents requiring police intervention since being drafted in the first round two seasons ago by the Titans. They gave up on him this past offseason and moved him to Dallas, where he’s hoping to revive his career.
