    Yeah, no surprise. I hear the way this sounds trust me, but I wonder what would have happened reinstatement-wise had Houston taken the chance. I'm glad we will never know, but I still wonder.

    Like everyone else, I'm not surprised. I'm interested to see how well he'll readjust to life in the NFL.

    His life didn't completely fall apart during his suspension, which is what some people figured it would do, so maybe he's turned it around.

    Pac Man better have his act together because Goodell will be keeping a close eye on him.

    Well his options are very limited.

    He will either do as told and be good...

    OR

    he will thug out the rest of his life and waste the good things he has been given.

    If he's got an ounce of brain activity going it's an easy choice!

    The 'Gentlemen's' establishments are stoked that he will be in Dallas, if at least for a little while...

    I think Jerry Jones had to blow Goodell for this favor. Don't snicker...it's not completely out of the realm of possibility.

    Not that it wasn't obvious he was going to be reinstated, but this is a bad move IMO.

    It's quite evident that Vick will be reinstated when it comes time. :gun:

    Boy, that policy is really strict. :sarcasm:

    Shame on you Goodell

    That was my initial thought as well. What if team that wasn't a high profile, big market team had taken the chance on Jones like Cleveland or Tampa. I wonder if the ruling would be different. I will say that at least from the outside it looks like since he's gotten to D he's been fairly model. They've shown him up here doing kid's camps and such trying to clean his image up and also trying to lose the "pacman" moniker.

    Then again I don't do the "Gentlemen's club" circuit.

    So far, so good. Where Adam goes from here is choice driven, and my wishes for him is to take full advantage of the opportunity and be a positive example for someone else.
