Default Rumor: Texans some level Pacman interest

http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs....803080360/1027

Quote:
The Titans in recent weeks have talked to a number of teams about Jones, and so far the Cowboys have shown the most interest, sources familiar with the situation said. The Miami Dolphins and a few others also appear interested.

Detroit, Oakland, Kansas City, Houston, New Orleans and New England are among those to have expressed at least some level of interest.

At this point, however, the teams are reluctant to make a trade because of the uncertainty that surrounds Jones' future in the NFL. Agreeing on compensation is another hurdle. Teams don't appear willing to give a high draft pick for Jones, and the Titans are inclined to wait to see whether they can get a draft pick that meets their satisfaction.

Jones was suspended in April 2007 after a string of off-the-field incidents. Last month, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he had no plans to reinstate Jones anytime soon.

Goodell indicated he planned to review the case again closer to the opening of training camps in July. Manny Arora, Jones' attorney and agent, had said he planned to ask Goodell to re-examine the matter leading up to the April 26-27 NFL Draft. There's at least a possibility Goodell would allow a trade to take place if the Titans are able to work out a deal with another team.

So what would be fair compensation for Jones?

Barely a week ago, receiver Troy Williamson, the seventh pick in the 2005 draft, was traded from Minnesota to Jacksonville for a sixth-round pick in April's draft. Jones was selected just one spot ahead of Williamson in the same draft.

The Titans would argue Jones has more upside on the field. Other teams, of course, certainly are pointing to his troubles off it.

Default Re: Rumor: Texans some level Pacman interest

looks to me as if The Tennesseean just listed teams who could use help at DB. I seriously doubt Mr. McNair would spend a wooden nickel on a scumbag like PacMan...even if the potential was there.

I agree that some team will take a shot on this guy, but IMO, it won't be the Texans. For what its worth, I wouldn't give this guy a spot on my team either.

As Emmitt Smith said, "this tiger ain't changed his spots".

Smith & Kubiak can't sell Jones to Bob McNair. As Koolaid Time so subtlety suggested, there's no chance Pacman becomes a Texan.

I don't think the Titans can get a '08 pick for Jones. Who is going to spend a pick this season on a player who may not even see the field? Tennessee will have to wait until Goodell reinstates Jones before making a deal.

This guy is going to Dallas they have a history of dealing with young troubled athletes such as Micheal Irvin, Nate newton, Leon Lett, Erik Williams etc. Adam Jones is 25 years of age is super talented but is super stupid as well. I think that he deserves a 2nd chance and we have all done crazy stuff when we were 23 years old so hopefully the young man is gone through therapy and has his mind right so he won't through away his promising career as one of the best CB's in the NFL.

There will be a 90% chance of rain at strip clubs in the Houston area should Pac-Man come to Houston.

I take this to mean that we are snooping heavy for a cb....I'd assume we have been very busy behind the scenes telling teams they are open to trade for players in contract years or whatnot...probably how we get lumped in with a guy we obviously won't pursue.

I dunno, but I predict we will sign a deal with Pacman right after he and
Mr. McNair go out on the town together with all of Pacmans pals from his ATL 'hood for a night of alcohol & drug consumption while touring Houstons best girly-shows.

It would be silly not to at least ask the Titans what they want for Pac Man Jones. I think the Texans are just looking but not interested in buying.
