Adam Jones Reinstated By NFL

Adam “Pacman” Jones hs been reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and will be able to play in the Cowboys season opener in Cleveland.

The league in June allowed Jones, a cornerback and kick returner who was suspended last season after multiple arrests, to practice with the Cowboys and play in pre-season games. Today’s full reinstatement was confirmed by NFL spokesman Greg Aiello.

The Cowboys acquired Jones’s rights on April 23 from the Tennessee Titans, where he played his first two NFL seasons.

Jones, 24, received a 16-game ban in April 2007 for conduct detrimental to the league after his fifth arrest in less than two years.

“This is another step in the process,” Jones said in a statement released by the Cowboys. “I am very grateful for this opportunity, and I understand my responsibilities to the Dallas Cowboys and the National Football League.”

In December, Jones pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct after being ejected from a Las Vegas strip club in February 2007, shortly before a triple shooting that left an employee paralyzed.

Jones, the sixth pick in the 2005 draft, had four interceptions for Tennessee during his first two NFL seasons, returning one for a touchdown. He also had four punt returns for scores.

The Cowboys open the NFL regular season on Sept. 7 against the Browns.
