Pacman Jones wants to play for the Dallas Cowboys and the Cowboys want him. Jones has moved to the Dallas area and is ready and willing to participate in the upcoming training camp. But there’s one major hurdle to this happening; Jones is still suspended for various violations of the NFL’s player conduct policy. His suspension is indefinite.

On April 26, Jones and the Cowboys tentatively agreed to a four-year deal. The talented cornerback, who was the sixth pick overall in the 2005 draft, played for two years with the Tennessee Titans. Over the course of two season, he played in 30 games, making 116 tackles, 95 solo stops and taking in four interceptions. Due to his suspension, Jones sat out the entire 2007 season.

The first step in the process is for Dallas owner Jerry Jones to meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Goodell has said that he would review Pacman Jones’ desire to return to the football field.

Training camp for Dallas starts on July 25, 2008, and is located in Oxnard, CA. Goodell noted that all negotiations towards reinstating the cornerback will be held privately and will be between the NFL and the Dallas Cowboys.
