Dallas Cowboys Cut Adam ‘Pacman' Jones

The Dallas Cowboys have had it with Adam "Pacman" Jones.

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that Dallas has decided to cut Jones, the talented but troubled player who has served as the league's poster boy for off-field misconduct. Although Jones won't be officially released from his contract until February 9, he is done in Dallas.

As the Cowboys were widely regarded as the only team in football that wanted to deal with Jones, it is possible that his NFL career is now over.

The Cowboys acquired Jones in a trade with the Tennessee Titans during the 2008 off-season. At the time he was still under a league-imposed suspension that had kept him off the field for the entire 2007 season, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he believed that Pacman would gain reinstatement to the league and would change his ways.

But while Pacman was reinstated, he didn't change his ways. A fight with a member of the team's security detail led to another suspension during the 2008 season. That incident may have cost him his last chance to make a living as a professional football player.

UPDATE: ESPN reports that Pacman was involved in another nightclub shooting.
