ESPN is reporting that the Titans declined the Dallas Cowboys offer of a 7th round pick for troubled cornerback Pacman Jones. But the Cowboys brass is not giving up. They have now offered the Titans an undisclosed player.
This is a very interesting development, largely because we have no idea who the player is. Who could the Titans use?
Is Marcus Spears on his way out? I am not sure he fits the Titans needs. Is Anthony Henry going to be traded straight out for him? I cannot think of a player whom the Cowboys may offer for the PacMan deal.
Let’s debate this now and see if we can figure out who the player is. Here is a snippet from the article:
The Titans are considering the deal but need to address some financial issues before they accept the offer, according to the report. Jones has two years left on his original five-year, $30 million contract, and the Cowboys want to redo the deal, likely to one year.
“The kid was the sixth pick in the  draft and we need to get something of value in return,” an unnamed Titans official told SI.com.
Jones has stated his willingness to rengotiate the contract and his agent, Manny Arora, met with Cowboys officials earlier this week.
Titans coach Jeff Fisher, meanwhile, seemed to indicate that the team was ready to sever ties with the suspended cornerback.
“We’ve given them permission to look for a new home and whatever happens after that happens,” Fisher told The Tennessean. “He’s entitled to his opinion. I know he has enjoyed the time that he has spent here on the football field. But because of his choices and such off the field, he’s created a situation where he’s going to have to look elsewhere.”
According to the Dallas Morning News, the reports from ESPN and Sports Illustrated don’t have merit. Read the blog here. That just sounds like jealousy for getting scooped. I’m not sure how the right hand can’t know what the left hand is doing in the Dallas Cowboys organization. But I can see how it happens in the media.
