‘Adam' Pacman Jones Is Back in Dallas, Awaiting Word From Commissioner Goodell

Last week, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that he would gladly welcome "Adam" Pacman Jones back on the roster assuming, of course, commissioner Roger Goodell could see fit to reinstate the strip-club lovin' cornerback.

Goodell, who, on Oct. 14, suspended Jones indefinitely, has yet to rule on the matter, but Mr. Pacman, after a stint in rehab, is back in Dallas awaiting a verdict. According to the Dallas Morning News' Calvin Watkins, Jones completed a 30-day stint in a Boston alcohol treatment facility where it was determined that he didn't have any alcohol problems.

So that's all it took? Thirty days to undo a lifetime of addiction and poor decision making? Man, the Titans must really be kicking themselves for not thinking of this. Sounds dubious to me, and I suspect that when the treatment center says "Jones doesn't have any alcohol problems," they mean it in a "he didn't get sloppy drunk and trash the place" sense.

Whatever, Jones is back in his Dallas-area home staring at the phone.

"I have not been given any indication as to what the commissioner's office is thinking," Jones' Nashville-based attorney Worrick Robinson said. "I am hopeful that they will consider the totality of the circumstances with considerable attention to the progress he has made in the last four weeks."

Jones was considered the best cornerback on the roster before he was suspended, and even after a solid showing from the secondary against the Redskins on Sunday night, I'd imagine his teammates would happily celebrate his return (team-appointed bodyguards might feel differently, however). If nothing else, it might mean fewer opportunities for Pat Watkins to get bulldozed by a scrambling quarterback.
