Cowboys owner and GM Jerry Jones made the trade with Tennessee to bring Pacman Jones to the Cowboys.
It was a risk that paid off today because Jones was reinstated by the NFL. He can play in the season opener September 7th in Cleveland.
Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam Jones was re-instated to play in the NFL for the 2008 season today by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
“This is another step in the process,” said Jones. “I am very grateful for this opportunity, and I understand my responsibilities to the Dallas Cowboys and the National Football League. Right now I just want to keep working hard so I can accomplish the goals that I have set for myself both on and off the field.”
“Adam has worked hard to get to this point, but he also knows that there is still a lot of work ahead of him,” said Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones. “He is fully aware of the opportunity that he has been given, and he knows that this is an ongoing process.”
