Dodge Posted April 23, 2008 Share Posted April 23, 2008 The Dallas Cowboys and Tennessee Titans have agreed in principle on a trade for suspended cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones. Pacman Jones Jones The agreement, which was first reported by ESPN's Ed Werder, was confirmed to The Associated Press by both teams. No terms had been filed with the NFL office, which already had closed for the day. Dallas will send its fourth-round pick (the 126th overall) in Saturday's draft to the Titans for Jones. There are also conditions attached to the trade related to Jones being reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and how much he plays for the Cowboys. If he plays a significant amount of time in 2008, the Titans will get an additional pick from the Cowboys in 2009. If he doesn't get reinstated by the NFL, the Titans will send an undisclosed 2009 draft pick back to the Cowboys. Also, Pacman has reached a financial settlement with the Titans regarding his contract situation. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that Jones will forgo the $1.25 million performance bonus that he earned in 2005. Instead of repaying the Titans a portion of his signing bonus, he has agreed to make a $500,000 donation to a charity of the Titans choice within the next two years. Jones has agreed to a restructured contract with the Cowboys.Terms of the deal were not available. The Titans gave Jones permission to talk to other teams weeks ago, and the cornerback had been barred from working out on their property in February. The Titans and Cowboys struggled to agree on compensation for someone who hadn't played since December 2006. Jones was suspended in April 2007 for his off-field conduct, and a January visit to an Atlanta strip club prompted the NFL to tell him the league wouldn't consider reinstatement him until prior to the opening of training camps in July. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3364138 I'm not surprised whatsoever.
