NFL cornerback, Adam “Pacman” Jones career has ended with the Dallas Cowboys.
Wired PR News.com – Adam “Pacman” Jones was released from the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday, as reported by CBS 11 News. Although officials have not reportedly commented directly on the release, many speculate that it was likely due to prior team suspensions, and poor performance on the field. Jones averaged only 4.6 yards per punt returns with no interceptions.
Jones’ off field antics came as no surprise before he was traded to the Cowboys. While with the Titans, Jones was suspended multiple times but subsequently given the green light to play in 2008 by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
The cornerback was most recently suspended in October for an alcohol related incident in a Dallas hotel after being accused of fighting with a bodyguard. Although he and the bodyguard insisted there was no issue, a hotel employee called the police. Jones was not arrested, but it is what many believed to be the beginning of the end of his career with the Cowboys.
Jones’ attorney, Worrick Robinson is quoted by the AP as stating, “He was surprised and I think he was obviously somewhat hurt. At the same time, he understands the business behind what is happening here.”
