    Pacman Jones suspended! Rams sign RB Kenneth Darby ...

    Pacman Jones OUT against the Rams, and at least four games. This idiot should be out of the league permanently ...

    Rams sign Kenneth Darby, RB from Alabama. This guy can play. Struggled his senior season, but he was a very effective runner for the Tide. Takes Leonard's spot on the roster ....

    Interesting interview with Darby here:

    Scout.com: NFL Draft Prospect: Kenneth Darby

    We spoke to him before the 2007 draft and he liked us back then...

    ESPN: Pacman suspended at least 4 games for violating conduct policy

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones has been suspended for at least four games for his most recent violation of the league's personal conduct policy, the NFL announced Tuesday.

    The league said Jones was involved in an alcohol-related incident at a Dallas hotel on Oct. 8. Previous reports indicated Jones was involved in an alcohol-related scuffle with a bodyguard assigned to him by the Cowboys, and that hotel employees called the police.

    Jones will not be paid during the suspension. Commissioner Roger Goodell will determine the ultimate length of Jones' suspension after Dallas' Week 11 game against Washington on Nov. 16.

    In his letter to Jones informing the player of his latest suspension, Goodell said Jones' "disturbing pattern of behavior was clearly inconsistent with the conditions I set for your continued participation in the NFL."

    League and law enforcement sources told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen that Goodell was expected to weigh whether Jones was in potential violation of his probation, in which he was prohibited from alcohol-related incidents.

    When Goodell reinstated Jones from suspension before the regular season began, sources said one of the commissioner's conditions for Jones to remain an active player was that he remain in compliance with all aspects of his three-year probation from when he pleaded no contest last February to a felony in Fayette County, Ga.

    Police reported that Jones might have been drinking when he was involved in the scuffle with a Cowboys-assigned bodyguard last week in Dallas. But Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has refuted many of the allegations and speculation. Even though police were called to the scene, no arrests were made or charges filed.

    "We respect and support the decision of the commissioner," Jones said in a statement Tuesday. "I regret that this issue has brought negative attention to the Cowboys and the NFL.

    "We move forward with a very clear knowledge as to what the process will be for a possible reinstatement. Adam is well aware of where he stands and what he has to do."

    Jones began his time in Dallas under close scrutiny by the league after he was suspended for the entire 2007 season for multiple violations of the conduct policy while he was a member of the Tennessee Titans. The Cowboys traded for Jones before his suspension was over and he was reinstated by Goodell on Aug. 28.

    Goodell also said his decision on whether Jones can return to play will be based on Jones' strict compliance with the NFL and the Cowboys in relation to treatment plans and evaluations by clinical experts.

    Information from ESPN.com NFL writer Pat Yasinskas was used in this report.

    Mwa ha ha ha ha, their secondary is completely ravaged. I can only hope that the line gives Bulger the time he needs to shred it.

    Was he drafted? I saw he only has 2 career carries, but I know he was pretty good in college.

    Pacman suspended. What a surprise. Maybe now people will realize that this guy is a lost cause who'll never change.

    AMEN to that. How this idiot does not get a permanent ban, I will never understand. Absolutely ridiculous and it is time for the league to take a stand ...

    Or that Saunders comes up with a game plan to take advantage of their secondary.

    in the context of what he`s done before i thought this latest incident was a very mild thing that possibly a lot of players have done without it ever being reported..but also in view of his history he must have realised that he was on the shortest of leashes!

    Pages 600-650 in his 700 page playbook contain the "attack the secondary" plays.

    Jones is just a complete bonehead. Here's a player with that much potential who appears ready and willing to throw it all away.

    On the upside, you can add one more to the Cowboys injury/suspended starters list.

    I believe the count is now seven

    He couldn't cover a grandmother in a wheelchair in a phonebooth anyway. He's never been great at coverage and he's not even as great at run-support as he was a couple of years ago. He's seriously overrated IMO, if he didn't play for the Cowboys he wouldn't get the attention that he does.

    I hope we get some matchups with Avery vs. Roy Williams, Avery will blow right by him.

    Pacman has changed, but trouble follows him. It's not his fault!
