Pacman Jones' Workout Reportedly Goes Well

Pacman Jones worked out for five NFL teams at Hahnville High School down in Louisiana on Friday.  Jones' workout was originally scheduled to be at Tulane following the school's pro day, but not wanting attention to be taken away from its players, Tulane apparently objected to that, forcing the workout's location to change to a local high school.  That was why there was confusion over his workout and if it was actually going to happen, but it did and went well, according to Jones' agent and trainer.

Jones' agent, Ray Savage, said his client clocked in at 4.42 and 4.48 seconds in the 40-yard dash on FieldTurf. Jones ran a 4.47-second 40-yard dash at the 2005 NFL Scouting Combine.

"He looked great," Rousse said. "They just wanted to see his footwork and the defensive back drills."

"It went great, great, they loved him," Rousse said.

Assuming Jones' workout went as well as his agent and trainer made it sound, the question that NFL teams will really have to ask is if it's worth it to take a risk on signing a player with such questionable character.  Teams that have no shortage of talent might very well say no, but what about a team like the Lions?  I've previously said that if Jones does well at his workout that I wouldn't be against the Lions signing him as long as they apply a zero tolerance policy to him.  Who knows if Jones will ever be able to stay out of trouble, but for a modest contract and a one-strike policy, why not bring him in and add some talent to the defensive backfield?
