Can "Pacman" Jones Come Back?

Does Anyone Want a Pacman Resurrection?

There are few stories fans love more than a comeback. Britney did it. Lance Armstrong did it. The Red Sox seem to do it every year. But reversing the curse was child's play compared compared to Adam "Pacman" Jones resurrecting his career.

After a series of arrests and off-field incidents mostly involving strippers, intoxicants or some combination of the two, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, has thrown the book at the Cowboys cornerback. On Tuesday, he suspended Pacman for at least four games for what officials have called "an alcohol-related scuffle" with one of the bodyguards assigned to him by the Cowboys, in an upscale, Dallas hotel bathroom. Goodell can, and may, hand down a lifetime suspension in November, after the league concludes its investigation.

Meantime, Pacman appears to be taking steps on the road to redemption. He has voluntarily checked himself into rehab and has hired the always sobering Deion Sanders as his spiritual adviser. According to Jerry Jones, the Cowboys owner who is clearly better at selecting wide receivers than bodyguards, put it, Pacman needs to address his "alcohol issues." His teammates are praying for him.

But even if he can get right with the bottle, and even if by some miracle Robert Goodell gives him yet another "last" chance, the question remains, do fans want to see a Pacman comeback? Let me know your thoughts.

Let him spend the rest of his life playing football in one of the millions of minor leagues that will be in existence like the AFL, UFL, NGFL

Obviously, he doesnt know when to say when... especially since it comes at the cost of his livelihood....wonder if he graduated and has a back up plan?

Apparently someone didnt tell him that he's a representative of a company (the NFL) and often in corporate situations the company has the right to terminate the employee for conduct detrimental to the company's image....

The fool got a second chance and blew it...most corporations wouldnt put up with that type of crap, especially not at the cost....

I wouldnt be surprised if his worth dropped substantially....
