IRVING, Texas (AP) — Troubled cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones became a free agent after being released Monday by the Dallas Cowboys.
The Cowboys said last month they planned to release Jones. But Monday was the first day teams could make waiver requests.
Jones was suspended for six games by the NFL after an alcohol-related scuffle in October with a team-provided bodyguard at a Dallas hotel.
The cornerback came to Dallas after being suspended for the entire 2007 season following multiple off-field incidents while with the Tennessee Titans. The Cowboys acquired him in a trade during the draft in April, and commissioner Roger Goodell cleared him to play at the end of the preseason.
A call placed to Worrick Robinson, Jones' Nashville, Tenn.-based attorney, was not immediately returned Monday night.
