Troublemaking cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones will be allowed to play in the Cowboys' season opener against Cleveland, the Dallas Morning News reports. Jones, traded from Tennessee this year, hasn’t played a regular-season game since Dec. 31, 2006. The league suspended him after six arrests and 12 off-field incidents, including one that involved a shooting at a Vegas strip club. Pacman, however, been trouble-free since then.
“It feels good man, you know, to get a second chance,” Jones said of his opportunity to play Sept. 7. “First and foremost, I don't want to let myself down, definitely my little girl down. I need to keep doing what I've been doing to get reinstated, staying with myself and my teammates and staying away from those knuckleheads and just stay focused.”
