I don't know, it has been fairly obvious to me which ever team trades for him will end up getting a reformed Adam Jones who turns out to be a multi pro bowl shut down CB with elite PR skills. Seems about right - Titans put up with all his BS and he flourishes elsewhere.
Reformed? I doubt it. Guys that usually get in as much trouble as Pac Man does, usually keep getting in trouble. Tennessee did the right thing by getting rid of him.

I wonder if we're not watching a re-run here, considering the last time a championship-caliber head coach left the Cowboys and Jerruh was left in charge to his own devices. The product on the field worsened while the issues and incidents off the field increased. Maybe next year they can sign Chris Henry of the Bengals, he's so talented.
Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.
"We want to go to an established team with good infrastructure and leadership," Arora told Werder. "Both the Cowboys and Patriots have veteran coaches who have been through these kinds of things before, good player liaisons and mentoring, and if you have those things and a winning program, then I think all these problems go away."
"All of Adam's issues have been offseason issues, not team issues."
Lol! As if it's the Titans fault that PacMan is a dumbass? Please, the only reason PacMan is with the Titans is because of Jeff Fisher giving him grace and chances. As for players leadership and such, well, it's a good thing we don't have the NFL Player's Association's Player's President in Kevin Mawae on our team and countless other vets from proven, winning teams on our roster, or else that'd just seem foolish.
Oh, and as for only having "off-season" issues, that's not true. He didn't play a game during the regular season last year. That in itself is an issue. And before that, he's had conflict with players, most notably being Albert Haynesworth and Keith Bulluck. The players on the team only like him when he's a contributing member of the team. They could care less about him when he becomes the pimple on society's butt. They're just disciplined enough to refrain from saying, "I hate PacMan Jones," to the evening news or ESPN. Oh, and all of that doesn't include argument with coaches and officials. And lets not forget when he decked Kellen Winslow Jr. during a game in college...yeah, totally no evidence of on-feild issues.
Give me a break. The team that trades for PacMan gets a good player...for one season. And I think that's generous. He hasn't played for a year, and if he's as careless with his future by having so many run ins with the law, I wonder how good of shape he's in. And like his law problems, I bet he thinks he'll just use his natural talent to save his sorry tail. But, just incase he can be a contributing member to the team, it'll only be until he's acquainted himself with the local club scene and strip clubs. The dude f***ing' went to a strip club before his meeting with Roger Goodell! Does anyone in their right mind think he'll go to another location and suddenly change the behavior he's displayed time and time again over the past 3 years? Especially when he now knows that another team will just gamble on him like the Cowboys did?
The only thing better than actually tricking some greedy team into trading for PacMan is having him re-instated by Goodell only to be suspended for an extended length of time by Fisher.
Based off talent alone, I'm not sure there is a better cb in the draft. Pacman gives us that fast twitch compact corner that can keep up with the Wes Welkers, Steve Smiths and Santana Moss' of the world. We've had trouble keeping smaller receivers in check and with Pacman, we'd have that guy.
but you can easily draft a CB, and move Newman in the slot against those type of WRs against 3 WR sets. thats almost as effective with half the drama.
granted, Pacman is an amazing talent and can be a potential steal, but the media circus that will come with him can hinder a team's focus. look at TO, his first year in Dallas was a circus, Pacman will bring the same drama with him.
theres also a saying, too many chiefs, not enough indians. The Cowboys would be flirting dangerously with that saying if they make this move. if you play with fire long enough, you'll eventually get burned.
i don't think this move needs to be done, considering youre almost there as is, and with a solid draft and drafting a CB, you can address the biggest problem on your team with none of the drama.
And yes, I realize that Henry is getting up in age and Newman's contract is up soon, so having 2 CBs is great leverage, but you don't need to worry about that so soon. Even if you wanted, you can draft 2 CBs either with both 1sts, or 1 1st and a 2nd.
Its an awfully risky move. If I were the Cowboys, Id stay away, but if it does work out and you do make this move, then you can say Jerry has gorilla sized balls, bc this move is ballsy.
I don't see what the big risk is. If Pacman doesn't get reinstated or gets into trouble again and suspended all the Cowboys lose is a 2nd day draft choice. Given his talent and the fact that he proven he can play at a very high level its not a bad investment. You could draft a 1st round corner, but its maybe 50/50 he'll be a bust, even if he is a good one he won't be at pacmans level and he won't be at his best for atlaset a season.
Pacman is a thug and a big liability to get suspended again, but he's not a cancer. He's not going to tear the team apart and the Cowboys won't get bogged down cause of the media attention. They got TO who was actually a locker room problem and things were fine. Their used to getting alot of scrutiny and attention already.
"We're only going to score 17 points?" Brady said before chuckling about it. "OK. Is Plax playing defense? I wish he had said 45-42 and gave us a little credit for scoring more points."
