<!-- begin story body --> <!-- template inline -->IRVING, Texas -- Troubled cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=8421) was released Wednesday by the Dallas Cowboys (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=dal) following a season in which he was suspended six games for an off-field fight. <!-- INLINE HEADSHOT (BEGIN) -->

<!-- INLINE HEADSHOT (END) --> The transaction will not become official until Feb. 9, the first day NFL teams can make waiver requests.Jones's release came after "Outside the Lines" reporter John Barr contacted the NFL, the Cowboys and Jones' attorneys about a piece scheduled to air Sunday in which three Atlanta-area men allege that Jones arranged for someone to shoot at them two months after the football player was suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in 2007.

The June 2007 shooting occurred outside a suburban Atlanta strip club. One of the shooting victims told "Outside the Lines" that he had a dispute with Jones inside the strip club and that not long after he and the two others left the club, a hail of bullets struck their car. The NFL knew about that incident, but charges were never brought against anyone because the victims did not see the shooter.

"Outside the Lines" obtained information that police, investigating a separate Atlanta-area case, had been told by an informant that Jones ordered the June 2007 shooting following his dispute with one of the men. Police have said while the case remains open they are not actively investigating.

The Cowboys traded for Jones before the season even though he had been suspended in 2007 because of a series of off-field incidents.

"He was surprised, and I think he was obviously somewhat hurt," said Worrick Robinson, Jones' agent. "At the same time, he understands the business behind what is happening here."

He missed six games this season for violating the league's player conduct policy after an Oct. 7 scuffle with a team bodyguard at a Dallas hotel. He missed a seventh game with an injury.

Jones averaged just 4.6 yards per punt return and had no interceptions.

Robinson said he did not think Jones' suspension was a factor in the Cowboys' decision to release the cornerback.

"We don't have any reason to believe at this point that that off-the-field incident had anything to do with the team's decision today," Robinson said. "I know there was certainly a lot of bad that came out of that situation, but there was some good that came out of that situation as well."

He just repeated the story, and again, nothing mentioned of a shooting - only his past legal issues.

While he doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt given his past, I still don't like to hear that he's being fired based on speculation from a couple of criminals under investigation. If there isn't even enough evidence for the police to actively investigate the case, they shouldn't be able to fire him for it, especially since it was already known to the NFL and the Cowboys before they hired him.

I do not understand if Pacman is an idiot, retard or just has the brain of a gay bird. If you can't learn from you third time getting into trouble, then you do not deserve to even play football. I hate it when such people misuse their fame and money.

Laugh all you want, but it isn't a stretch to think that something similar could happen to any one of us where we would be fired for something that we had already disclosed before being hired, and I don't think that's right. If it wasn't an issue to the cowboys in the first place, it shouldn't be more of an issue now just because some assclown at ESPN decided he would pile on so he could pad his resume with a pseudo-scoop of some rehashed old news.

My understanding after reading the article on ESPN was that it was one of the same incidents that the NFL and Cowboys had already been notified of before his reinstatement and hiring and that the "new evidence" wasn't even enough to get the police to actively investigate the case. If it's completely new and actionable evidence, I don't have a problem with what's going on, but if it's just old news with some opportunistic reporter trying to make a name for himself and Jerry Jones trying to save face after an embarassing season, I think that's BS.

I think its a case of where the Cowboys assessed Pacmans season and came to the conclusion of:

He isnt worth the potential embarrasment/distraction for the minimal amount he produced on the field.

01-08-2009, 02:08 PM
If that's the case, it makes perfect sense, but that's not how it's being presented. I just have a real problem with people throwing other people under the bus in order to save their own ass or to make a name for themselves. I hate opportunists like that.

It would be a good move IMO. Drop his ass before he gets any worse.

My hatred for the Cowboys would like to see him stay, but the arrival of Roy W. pretty much sealed his fate a while back.

Cowboys release Pacman Jones

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Associated Press

IRVING, Texas -- Troubled cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was released Monday by the Dallas Cowboys, making him a free agent.

The Cowboys said last month they planned to release Jones, and Monday was the first day teams could make waiver requests.

Jones was suspended for six games by the NFL after an alcohol-related scuffle in October with a team-provided bodyguard at a Dallas hotel.


Pacman Jones had 31 tackles and no interceptions in his nine games with the Dallas Cowboys.

The cornerback came to Dallas after being suspended for the entire 2007 season following multiple off-field incidents while with the Tennessee Titans. The Cowboys acquired him in a trade during the draft in April, and commissioner Roger Goodell cleared him to play at the end of the preseason.

Expected to give the Cowboys a boost on defense and special teams, Jones had 31 tackles and no interceptions in his nine games (six starts). He averaged only 4.5 yards on his 21 punt returns, with a long of 18 yards.

Before coming to Dallas, Jones was arrested six times and involved in 12 instances requiring police intervention after Tennessee drafted him in the first round in 2005.

The Cowboys traded for him anyway, despite the 2007 suspension.

But on Oct. 7, Jones got into the incident with the bodyguard and was suspended again. Jones missed a seventh game later in the season with an injury.

The 25-year-old Jones spent part of his time away from football taking part in an alcohol rehabilitation program.

Tennessee received a fourth-round draft pick in the April trade. The Titans were also supposed to get a sixth-rounder next year, but because Jones was suspended again, Dallas will instead receive a fifth-round pick in 2009.

A call placed to Worrick Robinson, Jones' Nashville, Tenn.-based attorney, was not immediately returned Monday night.

You didnt just say "should we bring him in for a look?" did you?

That is bannable phrase for having LFBIQ.... IF YOU had HFBIQ you would of said something more along the lines of "Hey guys Pacman has been cut, but I dont think he is worth the trouble when we already have two/three pretty solid CB's" or "Would a pick up of Pacman help or hinder our young secondary?"

No instead you break out LFBIQ..... Nice Job!
