Conflicting Reports On Pacman Jones Signing With The Lions

A report surfaced this morning that the Lions would soon be announcing the arrival of free agent CB Pacman Jones.  It apparently came from Pacman's camp because Lions sources tell Tom Kowalski of MLive.com that no deal has been reached.

However, according to a source close to the situation, the team has not reached any agreement with Jones. Another source called it "way off base.''    

The Lions GM admitted his interest in Pacman this week at the owners' meetings but indicated the next step in the process would be a sit-down interview.  That interview has yet to take place, according to Kowalski.

SB Nation's Pride of Detroit is buzzing over the possibility of signing Pacman. POD agrees with the move -- assuming they can cut the cord whenever they want.

I am definitely on the bandwagon supporting the signing of Jones, because I believe his talent is worth taking the risk on.  Obviously there is the possibility of Jones getting into trouble of some sort, but if that does happen then the Lions can simply release him.  On the other hand, if nothing happens, the Lions may have found a starting-caliber cornerback and/or returner.  To me, character flaws or not, this is a move worth making.
