Cowboys owner thinking of using Pacman on offense too

The Dallas Cowboys don't know when Pacman Jones can join them to begin workouts. When he does he might be studying the offense playbook.
Owner Jerry Jones said that Jones might be asked to play some wide receiver next season, according to a Fort Worth Star Telegram report on Thursday.
"In my mind there isn't a player out there in a given game or looking at next year, that could make a bigger impact to take some of the heat off of Terrell [Owens] than Terry Glenn," Jones said. "I think potentially we could get some of those offensive plays that Adam 'Pacman' Jones ran over at Tennessee -- he had 15, 20 of them, got in the slot. That could help us there, too."
Although Jones showed running skills as a return man, the Tennessee Titans didn't employ him much on offense. He has run the ball twice for eight yards and caught two passes for 31 yards in his two-year NFL career, but he could be a viable option considering Glenn missed 15 games after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last fall.
