Now That Pacman's Out of the NFL ...

The Cowboys cut Pacman Jones on Wednesday, and an ESPN report, aired suspiciously soon after, alleged that Jones had been involved in another 2007 strip club shooting, besides the old "Make It Rain" party in Vegas. This alleged shooting happened in Atlanta, and Jones is accused of hiring three men to murder a man. Jones had already been suspended by the league; no criminal charges were brought because at the time the alleged victim couldn't identify the shooters.
