Cowboys And Titans Talk Pacman Trade

According to a source, the Cowboys and Titans are having trade talks surrounding Pacman Jones.

Manubir Arora, Jones' agent, says the Patriots and Lions are also interested in his client.

Asked Jones' preference of a future team, Arora said, "Every kid grows up wanting to play for the Dallas Cowboys."

"We want to go to an established team with good infrastructure and leadership," Arora told Werder. "Both the Cowboys and Patriots have veteran coaches who have been through these kinds of things before, good player liaisons and mentoring, and if you have those things and a winning program, then I think all these problems go away.

"All of Adam's issues have been offseason issues, not team issues."
