Lions haven't closed door on Pacman Jones
Martin Mayhew has not closed the door on the possibility of signing free agent CB Adam “Pacman” Jones even though the Lions drafted CB Amari Spievey in the third round.
After the draft Mayhew, the Lions general manager, said they were evaluating everything.
“I wouldn’t say (Jones is) in play or not. Nothing’s really changed from the time we talked at the league meetings. At that time, I said the next step in the process with (Jones) would be to sit down and talk with him. We don’t have that scheduled; we haven’t planned anything about that. We’ll see how it goes,’’ Mayhew said.
Jones would present a low-risk, high-reward situation. Because of his off-field troubles his contract is bound to be laden with morality clauses and such. If he has turned his life around off the field, his speed and ability to cover would be a bonus for the Lions or any team.
Weeks ago the Lions made a trade with Atlanta for CB Chris Houston who is expected to start.
