Pacman Jones reinstated by NFL, is back on his own
By STEPHEN HAWKINS, AP Sports Writer
44 minutes ago

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)—Twice-suspended cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones will be on his own in his return to the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys.

This time, there will be no team-employed bodyguards to accompany Jones and try to keep him out of trouble.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Wednesday that the cornerback, who completed the inpatient portion of his NFL-ordered alcohol treatment in the Boston area, was being reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and should be eligible to play again after missing two more games.

Jerry Jones also said he isn’t bringing back the security detail—leaving it up to Adam Jones to make decisions on his own.

“You can draw your own conclusion, but the answer is absolutely,” Jones said.

Worrick Robinson, Adam Jones’ Nashville-based attorney, said the player understands it’s up to him to avoid any more trouble.

“It all starts with him and his decision-making,” Robinson said. “He’s comfortable making decisions for himself.”

Jerry Jones expects Adam Jones to return to practice with the team by Monday and play Dec. 7 at Pittsburgh “if everything goes like it should.” Adam Jones won’t play Sunday against San Francisco or next week on Thanksgiving against Seattle.

Despite Jerry Jones’ announcement of the reinstatement, there was no confirmation from the NFL on Wednesday.

“When there is a final determination, we will announce it,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello wrote in an e-mail.

Adam Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 season because of multiple incidents while with the Tennessee Titans. In the offseason, he was traded to Dallas and given another chance by Goodell.

The Cowboys gave him a security team to help keep him in line, but on Oct. 7, Jones got into an alcohol-related scuffle with one of the bodyguards during a private party at an upscale Dallas hotel.

“I am going to try something different,” Jerry Jones said.

Goodell suspended him indefinitely a week later, saying he’d put a timeframe on it after the cornerback missed at least four games. By the time Jones returns, assuming he’s back for the Pittsburgh game, it will be a six-game suspension—meaning he’ll have missed 22 of 28 games since the end of the 2006 season because of suspensions.

“He much appreciates the Cowboys and Jerry Jones for standing behind him and encouraging him, and he’s grateful to the commissioner,” Robinson said.

Jerry Jones and Robinson would not reveal any conditions the commissioner may have imposed.

“He knows what he has to do,” Robinson said. “It’s very clear.”

Robinson said the cornerback has been using this week to take care of personal issues and establish an outpatient relationship in the Dallas area as he continues the program he began in Boston. Robinson said it was in Jones’ best interest to go into rehabilitation.

“His intent is to stay involved with that,” Robinson said. “He has been hoping and praying he would have the opportunity to get back on the field. I know he’s excited to get back.”

Earlier in the day, before Jerry Jones broke the news, Cowboys teammates said they would welcome Adam Jones back.

“When he was here, he worked very hard and he helped us,” quarterback Tony Romo said. “He’s a good football player and I don’t see why you wouldn’t welcome a guy back that works hard on the practice field.”

Tank Johnson, who has the locker next to Jones and also has been through an NFL suspension for off-field troubles, said he’s spoken frequently with the cornerback.

“He’s just chomping at the bit to get back and come back and be successful,” Johnson said. “He knows we’re all with him and we’re never going to turn our back on him and as soon as he gets back it will be business as usual. I can’t wait to have 21 next to me in the locker.”

Somebody put in another quarter. :P

Titans knew that Jones wasn't going to make that much of a difference, and he really was more trouble than he was worth.

10-0? We don't miss him much.

War a Football team that requires a little bit of character from their players.

Cowboys CB Jones down to last strike
5 hours, 51 minutes ago

BRISTOL, CONNECTICUT (TICKER) —One more false step and it may be game over for Adam “Pacman” Jones.

The controversial Dallas Cowboys cornerback will face a lifetime ban from the NFL if he runs afoul of the league’s personal conduct policy again, according to a report by ESPN on Sunday.

Jones must strictly adhere to the terms of his reinstatement, which Commissioner Roger Goodell granted Friday after consulting with the clinical specialists who oversaw Jones’ 30 days in a rehab facility.

Under the terms of the reinstatement, Jones can return to practice on Monday and is scheduled to return for the December 7 matchup against Pittsburgh.

Jones was suspended for four games on October 14, one week after his latest off-the-field incident - an altercation with his bodyguard at a Dallas-area hotel.

That incident came just seven weeks after he was reinstated by Goodell following a 17-month suspension that caused him to miss the entire 2007 season.

Since alcohol was involved in the October incident, Jones’ actions violated terms of his previous reinstatement.

Goodell had suspended Jones for a minimum of four games and said he would determine the final length of the ban following the Cowboys’ Week 11 game against the Washington Redskins.

A history of legal problems - including six arrests - has plagued Jones since entering the league as a first-round draft choice in 2005.

The most serious incident took place at a Las Vegas strip club in February 2007 during the NBA’s All-Star Weekend, when a disturbance led to the shooting of a bouncer who became paralyzed from his wounds.

Jones accepted a plea deal, pleading no contest to a single charge of conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor. He was given a suspended one-year prison sentence and ordered to perform 200 hours of community service.

Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 season for multiple violations of the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

He was reinstated by the league on August 26 - four months after the Cowboys acquired him in a trade with the Tennessee Titans.

However, following the fracas with his bodyguard at a downtown hotel in Dallas, Jones earned another suspension from Goodell, who called the cornerback’s behavior “the continuation of a disturbing pattern of behavior and clearly inconsistent with the conditions I set for your continued participation in the NFL.”

One more misstep, and it's GAME OVER! :twisted:
