Report: Pacman says Packers called him
Pacman Jones was hoping to have work by now and the logical landing spot for him, if there can be one, was in Detroit where the Lions have a host of issues in the secondary and where head coach Jim Schwartz knows the player.
But that has yet to materialize and now Jones has told Sporting News Radio that the Green Bay Packers were one of four teams to contact him, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Senitnel.
Pacman in Titletown doesn’t seem like much of a match (you can insert your own one-liners here), but the Packers have been seeking an infusion of youth at cornerback. Jones doesn’t have any offers of a tryout or a contract.
The Packers sniffed around on quarterback Michael Vick at about this time last year, as Silverstein noted, and it’s the kind of legwork just about every team does involving just about every free agent. Jones has been cleared by the NFL for a full return to the game.
