The Cowboys have traded for Adam "Pacman" Jones. Let's break it down shall we? From a purely football angle:
  1. They Cowboys give the Titans a 4th round pick this year and a conditional 6th rounder next year.
  2. If Jones is not reinstated they get the 4th round pick back next season.
  3. If Pacman commits the inevitable fuck-up and get suspended again, the Cowboys get the 4th round pick back the next year.
  4. If the reports are to be believed there is no guaranteed money for Jones.
As I said, from a pure football angle: that is an awesome deal for the Cowboys. They get one of the best cornerbacks in the league and a guy who was second only to Devin Hester in punt returns 2 seasons ago.

All that considered, I still don't want him here. Say he is reinstated and some time during the season he screws up again, and gets suspended again. That is worse than an injury, because you know he won't be coming back, and you know he did it to himself. Plus, he is just a sorry son of a bitch and I don't want him playing for the Cowboys. Others point to TO and Tank Johnson as other troubled players the Cowboys signed recently. In those cases the players coming here seemed to genuinely want to change there ways, and realized the mistakes they made. Adam Jones has done nothing like that. He is damn near defiant in not changing his ways. Where is Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde when you need them?
