Pacman Jones waiting for a call

NFL_ajones_250.jpgWith the lone exception of trouble-prone, unemployed cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones’ rowdy appearance on the Pros vs. Joes television program, there hasn’t been much football in his life since being cut loose by the Dallas Cowboys.

Now, Jones is hoping the telephone will ring and that he’ll get yet another shot at playing in the league.

Jones’ agent, Worrick Robinson, told Terry McCormick of the Nashville City Paper that it’s unlikely that the former Tennessee Titans and Cowboys defensive back will be signed by a team early in training camp.

Currently, Jones has no contract offers.

“We realize that anywhere he goes, we would expect that it’s going to be a media circus and people take the focus off the team and try to make it about him,” Robinson said. “I’ve talked to a couple of teams that said they might be more interested in getting into the first weekend or so of camp, settling in and then maybe taking a look at him, because it would be such a circus when he comes to town. . . .

“We’ve talked to several teams. We’re going to go with who makes the right offer and the best offer. We’re still waiting for the first formal contract offer.”

Jones got into a fight with his bodyguard at a Dallas hotel last season and was suspended by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell before being reinstated. Then, Jones was cut by Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones after the season.

Robinson said that Jones isn’t exploring the United Football League at this time.

“We really haven’t talked about the UFL,” Robinson said. “I haven’t had any discussions with them, nor has Pac. We’re really not communicating with the UFL right now, only the NFL.”

UFL Commissioner Michael Huyghue, who used to represent Jones, confirmed that he hasn’t been in contact with Jones about joining the new football league.

As for the Pros vs. Joes appearance, Jones got into a fight with a diminutive former Holy Cross linebacker.

    As a 5’7, 140 lb man, I have a better chance of getting into the NFL then Jones. Hell, I think Manny Pacquiao has a better chance then Pacman.

    This guy is going to end up in jail. You know he spent every damn cent he made on making himself look like a big shot….and he’s never going to be able to cover his Lambo payments and stuff….I guarentee you if the next headline about him isn’t about signing with an NFL team, it will be about him getting a ticket to be Travis Henry’s roommate (Ok, maybe there will be a CFL or UFL buffer in there, but still this is where he’ll end up if he doesn’t catch on with an NFL team).
    Anyone want to make that bet?

    And wait….I thought he put “Pacman” behind him and was now “Adam”?
    Why is his AGENT referring to him as “Pac”? That’s just bad form.

    Pac a lunch Pacman, you will be waiting for someone to get desperate.

    Hopefully he is holding his breath as well, maybe Vince McMahon(sp) can put together a pay-per-view in which he and Vick fight to the death with the winner being fed to a large bear, hell I got $50 on it.

    Does he honestly deserve a shot i say No and on top of that he is a scrub.

    Sure, some teams may have been turned off by his off-field antics, but the fact is, had he played anywhere close to his early career potential during his last season with Dallas, he would be signed by now.
    Can’t you see that, Adam?
    Do you want to be a gangsta or a great football player?

    Has pac been working out?

    He has lost more than a step. He was suspect in man coverage last year, hopeless and too dumb to learn zone. On top of that, did anyone actually catch his Pros vs. Joes episode? I would have fought the guy too if he made me look that bad on national television. In a drill tailor-made to favor the skills of a professional cornerback he could barely break up a lob pass. He is a loser who doesn’t get it…..he will not play in the NFL again.

    Another one of Florio’s WVU bums that can’t cut it in the NFL
    Hey Adam “Don’t call me Pac-Man” Jones why don’t you give the UFL a call. They only play a six game season that will give you plenty of time to make it rain in strip clubs, but since you don’t have a team that wants you I don’t think strippers will enjoy getting pelted with pennies.
    Does the UFL get to pick the name on the back of the jersey? If so here’s a few for Adam…Goodell Hate Me, Jerry Jones Hate Me, or Rain Man!!

    Pac looks like a mammy with that hoodie.

    From his parole officer?

  14. alewatcher says: Jul 23, 2009 7:14 AM

    Right offer and best offer = any offer.

  15. JimmySmith says: Jul 23, 2009 7:34 AM

    Technically, he has been out of pro football since the Titans got rid of him.

    Welcome to Detroit. We have strip clubs aplenty and an organization as stupid and disfunctional as the Pacman himself.
    You’ll fit in nicely here!
