From all indications from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones – Pacman is on his way back. Yes, for now the third time, the NFL is going to give Adam “Pacman” Jones another shot to try and stay clean and play in the NFL for the Cowboys. Jerry Jones said that commissioner Roger Goodell has told him that Jones will be reinstated, and that he’ll again be allowed to play.
Cowboys owner Jones did however say that Adam Jones will not play this weekend vs the 49’ers, or next week vs the Hawks, and that his first game back on the field will be on December 7th when the team takes on Pittsburgh on the road. “He’s a long way, a long way from having clear sailing,” Jerry Jones said.
Sounds like Jerry is not playing around basically putting Pacman on his own. The latest issue had to do with the corner getting into trouble with one of the Cowboys bodyguards he was provided with. Jerry Jones says that the team will no longer provide Pacman with any type of support in terms of bodyguards.
Pacman Jones spent part of his time away undergoing alcohol rehabilitation. The latest suspension for Jones means it will end up being a six-game suspension. Jones also missed the entire 2007 season. By the time he returns, he will have been suspended from 22 of a possible 28 games.
Why the league is allowing this thug back is anyone’s guess, but if you could put odds on it, (and you know there will be), place them on Pacman being out of the league again, and this time for good, in a very short period of time.
