On Friday, Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reported that cornerback Pacman Jones is free to sign with any NFL team, his past suspensions notwithstanding.
On Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the league has advised agents Ray Savage and Tom Hunter that, indeed, Pacman may return without any impediment.
“This is further affirmation that Adam is ready, willing and able to
step in and contribute immediately,” said agent Ray Savage, who continues to not appear in the NFLPA database as a licensed contract rep.
The Lions, 49ers, and Bengals have been linked to Jones, the sixth overall pick in the 2005 draft. But 49ers director of player personnel Trent Baalke recently told Mike Sando of ESPN.com that the Niners aren’t interested, and we were told last week that the Lions will soon announce that Jones has joined the team.
