Pacman Fights With His Own Bodyguard

Pacman Jones was supposed to be walking the straight and narrow.  Now the news hits that he was fighting with a member of his own security team.

This bad news because starting corner Terence Newman could miss six weeks because he may need sports hernia surgery according to ESPN.com.

My man Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram is all over this story:

 Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones is in trouble again.

CBS/Channel 11 first reported Wednesday that Jones was involved in a fight Tuesday night at the Joule Hotel in Dallas, damaging a bathroom.

Police were called to the scene, but no charges were filed.

At least two sources confirmed the incident for the Star-Telegram:

According to the sources, Jones was attending a party hosted by the rapper Ludacris, who is in town shooting a movie with actor Mark Wahlberg.

Jones apparently got in a violent scuffle with his bodyguard, Tommy Jones. According to a source, it’s not the first time Jones and his bodyguard have come to blows.

Tuesday’s altercation came less than two weeks after Jones had been told by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to refrain from going out and to keep a lower profile.

Staying out of social situations that could lead to trouble were part of the stipulations of Adam Jones’ reinstatement to the league after being suspended in 2007 for repeated violations of the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

“It’s in his best interest to keep that profile low,” Jerry Jones said recently.

Coincidentally, news of Jones’ latest incident came the same day NFL commissioner Roger Goodell visited the Cowboys’ Valley Ranch facility.

Pacman Is Reinstated & Chilling At Hooters

NFL commish Roger Goodell has reinstated Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones.

He was chilling at Hooters having lunch when Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News broke the news to him.  Calvin’s blog post on the news is hilarious.

This is great news for the Cowboys who can plan their 53-man roster knowing they will have #21 to play cornerback.

Give Pacman credit for doing all the things the commish asked him to do.  He earned his way back to the league after sitting out the entire 2007 season for violating the league’s conduct policy.

Also, give credit to former Cowboys Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin who lobbied for Pacman to come to the Cowboys and worked with him to get his image straight and get involved in the DFW community.

Jones told the Dallas Morning News,

“It feels good man, you know, to get a second chance and I just have to take advantage of it,” said Jones. “First and foremost, I don’t want to let myself down, definitely my little girl down. I’m thankful for Jerry [Jones], the fans in Dallas and my teammates for believing in me. I need to keep doing what I’ve been doing to get reinstated, staying with myself and my teammates and staying away from those knuckleheads and just stay focused.”

Jones was asked if he ever thought this day would come.

“I never thought it would take this long, but I’m just glad I’m getting another chance.”
