Well Pacman Jones may not be “perfect” on the field, but he is certainly trying to be perfect off the field. That’s because the talented corner back has been anything but a perfect citizen when it comes to the law.

Jones, who played for two years in the NFL, from 2005 to 2006, sat out the 2007 season. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him in 2007 due to numerous problems with the law. At that time, he was a member of the Tennessee Titans. With the Titans, Jones played a total of 30 games, making 116 tackles (95 solo tackles), grabbing four interceptions and scoring one touchdown.

Now, with NFL Commissioner Goodell’s permission, Jones is participating in workouts at the Cowboys’ Valley Ranch. And although the talented defensive player is an interception and tackling specialist, he’s come to realize that life off the field is as important as game time. That’s because he missed the entire 2007 NFL season after having been suspended by the commissioner. Now Goodell has given Pacman a second chance and he definitely doesn’t want to blow it.

Jones said, “I feel real good to get around my new teammates and start working on what we’ve got to do for the future.” He added that he feels “a lot of relief, man. I’ve been waiting on this day for a whole year, so I’m just happy to be a part of this team.”

It’s clear that the CB is simply overjoyed to be on a football field again, preparing for the regular season. If he can stay out of trouble, the Cowboys will be overjoyed too.
