IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Troubled cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was released by the Dallas Cowboys following a season in which he was suspended six games for an off-field fight.
The announcement came Wednesday, but the transaction will not become official until Feb. 9, the first day NFL teams can make waiver requests.
The Cowboys traded for Jones before the season even though he had been suspended for the 2007 season because of a series of off-field incidents.
He missed six games this season for violating the league's player conduct policy after an Oct. 7 scuffle with a team bodyguard at a Dallas hotel. He missed a seventh game with an injury. Jones averaged just 4.6 yards per punt return and had no interceptions.
