With reports linking former Titans and Cowboys cornerback Pacman Jones to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (more on that in a bit), there’s a belief in some circles that Jones picked the CFL over the UFL.
Per a UFL source, however, there’s a sense of relief that he didn’t attempt to pursue a career in the new league.
According to the source, the upstart league wasn’t interested in adding him to the league’s premier season.
The source says that Jones had spoken once with New York Sentinels coach Ted Cottrell, but that was the extent of it.
Also, the UFL doesn’t anticipate signing Jones after the CFL season ends, given that most CFL deals include an option for a second year, from which Jones would have to be released in order to join the UFL.
Coincidentally, Jones was once represented by UFL Commissioner Michael Huyghue, who worked as a player agent before taking his current position.
