At the Buzzer -- Jerry Jones does it again
Leave it to the Dallas Cowboys and the slimiest owner in the NFL, Jerry Jones, to trade for the slimiest player in the league, Adam "Pacman" Jones.
Since entering the NFL in 2005, Pacman has been questioned by police in 10 different incidents. Our Minnesota Vikings look a bit on the slimy themselves this week for also trading for a troubled player, Jared Allen, who has twice been hit with DUIs since entering the NFL.
But while Allen sounded convincing when he told the Minnesota media Wednesday that his drinking days are done, absolutely nobody should be convinced that Pacman is done landing on the police blotter. Ten incidents in three years, and now he’s rehabilitated? Yeah, right.
Signing Pacman should be a public relations nightmare. Except when you’re Jerry Jones, and you worry not at all about such matters.
