Pacman invites NFL teams to watch him work out

On Friday we at PFT received an e-mail advising us that former Titans and Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones had “tentatively scheduled” a March 19 workout in New Orleans for any interested NFL team.

We weren’t quite sure what to make of the e-mail (which was attributed to “Jones’s advisors” and seemed to be from an agent not certified by the NFL Players’ Association), but we were reminded of it when Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reported today that Jones has scheduled the workout.

The workout will apparently take place immediately following Tulane’s pro day, so presumably some NFL scouts will already be there and figure there’s no harm in sticking around to see what Jones can do.

Jones worked out for the Bengals this month but didn’t sign with Cincinnati. After two seasons with the Titans in 2005 and 2006, his repeated off-field problems got him banished from the NFL in 2007. He returned with the Cowboys in 2008 only to run into more off-field problems, and he wasn’t in the NFL at all in 2009.

Jones is an excellent athlete who ran a 4.38-second 40-yard dash and vertical jumped 39 inches when coming out of West Virginia, so if he’s in shape he’s certainly capable of putting together an impressive workout for NFL scouts. But it’s likely that NFL teams will decide that Jones’ propensity for finding trouble outweighs his ability to run and jump, and that he’ll remain unemployed after the March 19 workout.

    Remember when Dallas signed him……And all the Cowgirl Schmucks considered it an act of genius on the Skelator’s part…..Maybe they can sign him, and trade him and a 6th for a 1st 4th and 7th round draft pick….

    Next Pacman will offer to teach Tebo how to throw (money) and make it rain. 😉
    Pacman, you’re done in the pros. Learn how to drive a truck or pour concrete.

    This workout doesn’t involve beating up his own bodyguard or anyone else does it?

    Pacman will have the rest of his life to try to undo hist stupidity.
    Leisure Suits will come back before Pacman does.

    Sounds like the Eagles / Vick plan that may or may not come to fruition.
    I’m hoping it blows up in their face.

    He was in a New Orleans strip club the other night. Working out real hard to try to get back in the NFL!

    Obviously you can tell where Pacman Jones wants/thinks he might be able to catch on.
    Schedule it in New Orleans pretty much tells you he wants to be a Saint or thinks they might sign him. We all know the Saints had trouble this year with keep their cornerbacks healthy and they are the Superbowl Champs.
    Pacman probably figures that he has a shot to make that team because of their problems at that position. He also probably realize their are alot of teams down South who need help at CB. So I think its a good idea to have his workout their.
    He was the most exciting cb in the league in his rookie season so I dont know if that was a fluke, he just lost his talent, or wasnt giving 100% since. Either way I dont know if any team will want to take a chance on him. Even though he hasnt gotten in trouble in a couple years I dont know if teams will even want to take a risk on a lockerroom cancer like PacMan.
    He will have to blow people away at his workout for some team to take a chance on him. If he doesnt show starter talent no one is going to want to introduce a guy with his background into their locker room just to be a dime back.
    But come on if the Begals wouldnt give him another chance and the Cowboys have already gotten rid of him I dont see it happening. To me it seems like Raiders or bust.

    Roger Goodell should never let this scumbag back in the league.
    This worthless P.O.S. will never get it.
