I have a new admiration for Jerry Jones right now.
Pacman Jones was suspended by the NFL today for an indefinite length and at least four games. Most already know that. As a result of that suspension, the Cowboys did not have to give up a sixth round pick to the Tennessee Titans. Moreover, the Cowboys will receive the Titans’ fifth round pick in 2009.
The Cowboys used that sixth-round pick as part of the package to acquire Detroit receiver Roy Williams, who also cost the Cowboys a first and a third in 2009.
So we aren’t any better on defense, nor are we sure what Brad Johnson brings to the table, nor do we have a first-round pick in 2009, nor are we really sure how Roy Williams fits into this offense. But darned if we don’t have an extra fifth rounder for next year that’s to all this wheeling and dealing.
Williams, by the way, signed a five-year deal with the Cowboys after the trade. I think it will be a good trade in the long run.
