Jones Completes Rehab, Waits For Decision

ESPN reports that Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones has completed the requirements for alcohol counseling, as mandated by the NFL following his latest violation of the league's personal conduct policy.

Jones' attorney, Worrick Robinson, said Jones has returned to Dallas and is awaiting a ruling from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on the possibility of reinstatement.

There is no way that Roger Goodell should reinstate Pacman again. This has gone on long enough. After Pacman's second incident he should have been kicked out of the league for good.

Pacman's latest violation of the league's personal conduct policy, which is the whole reason why he had to go to rehab, stemmed from an alcohol-related scuffle Oct. 7 with one of his bodyguards at a private party in Dallas. 

Jerry Jones let the incident go, saying that it was, "guys being guys," but Goodell made the correct move in actually stepping up and laying down the law. Pacman was forced to go to an alcohol rehab seminar until he has been "cured," and he was suspended for four games.

The league declined to comment at the time, but has said Adam Jones' reinstatement would depend on strict compliance with treatment plans and an evaluation by, "clinical experts."
