In The Tennessean this a.m., they're bidding good riddance to one Adam "Pacman" Jones -- "the biggest mistake in franchise history," though of which franchise do they write, the Tennessee Titans or the Dallas Cowboys? Because late yesterday evening, word came down that Dallas had, at last, traded for the "gifted, talented but unpredictable player who was arrested six times and involved in 12 incidents when police were called." Which, of course, makes his donning a Cowboys jersey kinda inevitable, doncha think? Incidentally, his former teammates ain't sad to see him go either. In honor of this trade, consider this "research." --Robert Wilonsky
