Update on Jerry's (non)pursuit of Pacman
Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley
In the wee hours of Sunday morning, a giddy Jerry Jones told Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he hadn't closed the door on troubled cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones returning to the Cowboys. But earlier this afternoon, Jones issued a statement to the Dallas Morning News via public relations chief Rich Dalrymple that he has "no plans to bring Adam back."
Could this be double-speak from Jerry? Nah, that could never happen. Pretty funny stuff. Hill had infiltrated the owner's suite at the new Cowboys Stadium at about 1 a.m. local time in an effort to let Jones know that someone forgot to order drinking straws for the concession stands. And that's when Jones apparently "broke" a little news on Pacman.
Blessed with some perspective after his big night, Jones is now telling a different story. You can't make this stuff up!
