Not quite. Percieved interest can drive the value up. Getting one team to spend its remaining cap could help another team in negotiations with a player that the teams had mutual interest in.

Moreover, FAs with offers that are currently on the table are now under some pressure to make a decision.

There is value, just depends on how you leverage it.

Default Re: Rumor: Texans some level Pacman interest

you can say no all you want to, but at the end of the day, I'm not going to say it couldn't happen. A lot of holes to fill, not as many draft picks high enough to do it as you like, and in spite of us wanting to believe we are a high character organization, we have had our fair share of police blotter ink. Jerome Mathis, Fred Weary, somebody who DUI'd that I can't recall at the moment, its not like we only hire boy scouts. We are a football team, he is a football player. Do I think its likely? No, because I can't imagine he'd want to come here. But I think its certainly possible, and shouldn't be instantly dismissed.

I would be embarrassed as a fan if we got this scumbag. I'm not against us bringing in guys with a couple of problems here and there - I'm certainly not as married to our 'character policy' as our front office is - but this is different. This guy is a habitual criminal! Not just a guy who has screwed up once, or even a handful of times.

I've already started making fun of the members of my friends and family who are Cowboy fans for their future acquisition of Pacman. Man, it would really be embarrassing to have to face them if we signed him. LOL

That said - that article is total BS. I don't care how reputible the writer is or isn't - there's no way we have the slightest bit of interest in Pacman.

How do you fill a hole with a guy who is constantly getting into trouble. At this point he has a massive bullseye on his chest. The next time he jaywalks he probably gets arrested.

Default Re: Rumor: Texans some level Pacman interest

I'm definitely interested! He'd be a one year option and we'd probably let him hit FA therefore he's going to be pumped for a huge contract year. Low character or not, I want my Houston Texans to win some football games. I don't like his personal life but I'm looking for football players. He would allow us to relax our search for a CB and maybe move our focus over to RB and OL in the draft. I'm not really too keen on the CB/FS choices via the draft this season.

Default Re: Rumor: Texans some level Pacman interest

Another thing to remember is that he's under contract with the Titans. There's NO WAY Bud Adams would allow him to go do a division opponent, especially the Texans. Here's a guy who DEMANDED that his team take Vince Young in the draft when it was widely known after (according to several stories) that the Titans braintrust (minus Bud) wanted Matt Leinert. Bud's in the business of sticking it to Houston, despite still living and working there.

You think he would take a guy as talented in the return game, and as a CB to play his team twice a year? No way. He'd only do it if we offered up a ridiculous package for him, and we're obviously not going to do that.

Default Re: Rumor: Texans some level Pacman interest

as Vinny astutely formulated- Texans where probably lumped in the mix cause Rick & Co. have been pounding the pavement for cb help.

I for one would be interested only if I felt he could be transformed into a model citizen. Above & beyond society norms. the benefit would be more to Adam Jones (first thing is to drop the nickname ) & the community off the field (helps others, charity, role model etc....) with on field results taking on more of a secondary role.

In other words there is real opportunity here but I doubt the Texans or any other NFL team for that matter would be up for the real task @ hand, restoring honor & integrity to an individual who has lost it all.

All the more reason he'd be pretty cheap and have to behave like a complete choirboy.

Think about it, other than trying to join that wrestling bunch, what mischief has he gotten into during his year-long suspension?
And he HAS to know that his next transgression - even the aforementioned jaywalking - means he's banned for life.
Face it, if there's one guy in the NFL that needs to be a model citizen, its PacMan Jones.
Number 2 would be Michael Vick.

Dude has served his sentence. Or have you guys already put him on lifetime suspension?
Ray Lewis learned his lesson and turned from thug wannabe into face of the franchise. So has Allen Iverson. So it can be done.

I'm with beerlover, this is a chance to give a guy a chance to redeem himself. It'll be interesting to see if any team in the league is willing to risk the wrath of self-righteous fans and give him a chance. And think about this, if he DOES screw up again, I mean so much as gets caught littering, no one would blame team X for giving him the boot.

The more I think about this, the smaller the downside gets.

Couldn't agree more he would mak a great football palyer and that's what we need. The question is Can he do the right thing and be able to play games for us?

Go to Google News and type in Texans and cornerback. I don't think it's any secret that the Texans are looking - and thus linked to any speculation of CB acquistion when the subject comes up - regardless of how ridiculous the speculation may be.
