Cornerback Adam Jones, released by the Dallas Cowboys in February, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL.

"It'll be a good experience for me to get back in game shape and compete and play football, which I like to do," Jones told SI.com, which first reported the story. "I'm real happy for the opportunity that's been given to me. Of course it's disappointing to me to not be playing in the NFL. But things happen and you have to adjust."
Jones, 25, chose the CFL over the inaugural United Football League, Jones' agents told SI.com. One of the factors was money -- contract details were not immediately known -- but Jones also will be able to play on both sides of the ball in the CFL, which still has 10 weeks remaining in its season. The four teams in the UFL will be playing a six-game schedule beginning in October.

Instead of "making it rain", he needs to learn to "make it snow".

I heard he is getting paid in 1$ bills.

Question, and not a "Should we..." kind of question.

Does anyone here think Pac Man ever plays in the NFL again? Just curious.

No.

And I wonder if our lax weed laws (cops rarely bother arresting public displays of smoking joints) led him to think this was paradise.

As an unfortunate soul that has been to Winnipeg on business, he'll love winter there. -30 every fkn day. Smoke that.

Sure he will! Tony Dungy and Andy Reed will help him "see the light," which will be GREEN and have a huge $ sign in the middle, and he'll be playing for the Eagles in a couple years. Offer the man 1.5 million bucks and he'll promise them anything they ask for, just like MV!!

Haha, thats a given....he's gotta try out the new city!

I think this will be a good move for him though...I'm expecting a move back to the NFL after a trouble free stint in Canada. Perhaps even get a contract for the last few weeks of the season, when the CFL is done, and the NFL is drawing to a close.

As cold as it gets there in the winter, I wonder if his women get stuck to the poles like a lollipop on a stick. Also, hope his tongue doesn't get stuck on those frozen poles. :shades:

WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- Adam "Pacman" Jones won't be playing for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers after all.

The CFL team announced Wednesday it has ended its pursuit of the controversial ex-NFL cornerback, one day after multiple reports said Jones would play for the team.

"It is unfortunate that this situation became public; however, our position has remained consistent," Blue Bombers coach Mike Kelly said in a statement. "We will pursue athletes that we believe will contribute to our organization on and off the field. We have completed our assessment and due diligence and at this time we will not be pursuing the services of Adam Jones."

Jones' attorney, Worrick Robinson, told The Associated Press on Tuesday he had been in "consistent negotiations" with a CFL team, but wouldn't say which one..

Gotta be the dumbest dude ever.

Pacman Jones reportedly sabotaged his potential signing with the CFL Winnipeg Blue Bombers in a rambling, disjointed UStream video Wednesday night.

The highlights include Pacman assuming he was going to the UFL instead of the CFL, telling Winnipeg fans he wouldn't be there long to deal with the cold weather because he was moving on ASAP, and flashing his girlfriend's 4 1/2 karat engagement ring ("Paid for!"). The video, done shirtless, did nothing but enforce Pacman's reprobate image.

Internet Video Sealed Pacman's CFL Fate (http://www.nbcdfw.com/blogs/blue-star/Internet-Video-Sealed-Pacmans-CFL-Fate-56950397.html)

Getty Images IRVING, TX - DECEMBER 20: Adam Jones #21of the Dallas Cowboys looks on during their NFL game against the Baltimore Ravens at Texas Stadium on December 20, 2008 in Irving, Texas. The Ravens defeated the Cowboys 33-24. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images) Sorry, Canada.

As we reported earlier, Pacman Jones is not headed up north after all. No snow, no Labatt's, no Blue Bombers; not for Pacman Jones at least. And it's not for no good reason. According to the Winnipeg Sun (via PFT), Jones was dropped before being signed, because of, very possibly, the most ill-advised U-Stream video in the history of U-Stream videos.

Through 44 minutes, according to the report, a shirtless Pacman boasted about his wealth and all but called the CFL a dog-and-pony show that he needed only as a route to return to the NFL. Jones is quoted in The Sun:

"Don't throw no dollars at me," a shirtless Jones, flexing for the camera, said at one point. "If you want to throw somethin' at me, throw me an NFL contract, man."

Jones has a point here; if anyone's going to be throwing dollars at anyone it's going to be Pacman. And he has the court cases to prove it.

"I've got a clause in my contract, when I get a call from an NFL team I can go over," he said. "I actually got two calls today, so if they tell me tomorrow that Pacman's back, that'd be a bummer for all my Winnipeg fans."

Oh, yes. Those fans that he's won over with his dedication, his gratitude towards the team and the town that afforded him a second chance at a time when most of the NFL looks at him like a stripper with a mysterious sore on her lip (though, that could just be a bruise from Pacman's last visit). Oh, yes. Those guys.

The worst part (if there really is just one discernible worst part) is that until Jones was informed by a caller, he exclaimed, "Go to the UFL and do my thing and get ready for a playoff run in the NFL, you know what I'm sayin'?"

No, we don't; because, according to PFT, the UFL doesn't want him either. According to their unnamed UFL source, the league wasn't only uninterested in Jones, but actually relieved when they had heard he was headed up North.

But no more. With the AFL gone the way of the dodo, and little interest elsewhere, options are scarce for Jones. And, tragic as it may be (it is, really), the talented 25 year-old has no one to blame but himself.
