The Adam “Pacman” Jones experiment with the Dallas Cowboys is falling apart. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended the cornerback for an indefinite amount of time because of a fight he had with his bodyguards and a Dallas hotel. ESPN reports the suspension is for at least four games.
Goodell’s letter to Jones says Jones’ “disturbing pattern of behavior was clearly inconsistent with the conditions I set for your continued participation in the NFL.”
This is another lump in an already horrible week for the Dallas Cowboys. We’ve already discussed the myriad injuries on the team, and Pacman sort of breaks the iceberg.
A light of hope, if you can call it that, is that Jerry Jones is having intense conversations with the Detroit Lions on trading for wide receiver Roy Williams. The Lions are out of their mind though if they think they will get a 1st round pick and more for Williams.
The Lions have been demanding a first-round draft choice just to consider a deal, and it is not known if Jones is willing to make the trade at that compensation level. The Cowboys could offer a second- and third-round pick, since they have multiple choices in the third round.
Other NFC teams are also in the hunt for new playmakers.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, attending the meeting of league owners, reported that the Cowboys’ NFC East rivals the Philadelphia Eagles have also made inquiries about Williams’ availability. While one GM said there was a strong possibility the Lions would trade Williams to the Cowboys or Eagles on Tuesday, Philadelphia is believed to be more interested in Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez. The New York Giants and Green Bay Packers are also pursuing a deal with the Chiefs.
The Cowboys have a recent bad history of trading a No. 1 pick for a decent receiver. Joey Galloway was riddled with injuries and never panned out in Dallas.
Maybe this can provide some laughs on what has been a real tough week:
