Pacman could practice in training camp

The agent for Adam “Pacman” Jones said Tuesday that the suspended cornerback could be allowed on the field for Tennessee Titans training camp and perhaps preseason games.

Jones was suspended for the season on April 10 by Commissioner Roger Goodell with the stipulation that his situation would be reviewed after the 10th game of the season.

Michael Huyghue, who represents Jones, said it is his understanding that Goodell will make a decision soon after the possibility of training camp was left open for Jones, depending upon his behavior and his unsettled cases in Georgia and Nevada.

“It’s a decision that will have to be made by the commissioner’s office, but when the suspension was issued, part of the conditions was that he could be at the facility, and there was the possibility that his time there could be increased,” Huyghue told The City Paper. “Right now, we’re hoping that he will be allowed on the practice field for training camp. There is the chance that might be able to participate in preseason games. The commissioner will have to decide that, but right now we’re just hoping to take the first step, which is getting back on the practice field for training camp.”

IMO, it would be a huge mistake to let him practice. It would be a distraction and take time away from someone who will actually be playing in the regular season.

After he's allowed to practice and play in the pre-season's, you will see moves to allow him to go ahead and play in the regular season. Teaching this guy to be responsible and act like an adult clearly will take second place to the needs of the Titans to make a hefty profit and maybe win a few.

This really is ridiculous. The Titans will not allow him to participate in training camp. I doubt very seriously if the NFL would either. It sounds like a weak attempt by Jones lawyer to force the Titan’s to possibly release him.

For the first time in a long time, it's not smacman's lawyer who's causing headlines, it's his agent. Again, it's a guy who won't be playing in 07-08 who is making the headlines and that's too bad for the Titans.

Why can't the Titans just squelch this and say he's simply not invited? They need to take charge of this situation for once and show some class, dignity and discipline and tell Jones to stay home until they call him.

Bud and the Titan's staff should get some b*lls and tell this child thanks but no thanks you have made your bed know lay in it. It would be bad for the team to have him in training camp or playing in the preseason games.
