The NFL will allow Pacman Jones to now practice and workout with the Dallas Cowboys, including participate in pre-season games. And, from the sounds of it, as long as Jones doesn’t do anything stupid between now and September 1 (a big if), he’ll be allowed to play.
The NFL released this statement:
"In a letter to Jones, Commissioner Goodell wrote that a final determination on his reinstatement for the 2008 regular season will be made by September 1. Commissioner Goodell told Jones that his continued participation in the NFL depends on demonstrating that he can conduct himself in a lawful and reliable manner. Jones will be expected to continue the personal conduct program established for him by the NFL and the Cowboys and to avoid further adverse involvement with law enforcement."
