Rules Allow Titans to Trade Jones to Cowboys... Or Anyone Else
There are reports that the Dallas Cowboys are talking to the Tennessee Titans about a possible trade for suspended cornerback Adam (Pacman) Jones.
Jones also has been linked to other possible new teams, including the New England Patriots and Detroit Lions, in media speculation about prospective trades.
Which leads to the question: Can a suspended player be traded?
Yes, apparently. The player's contract can be traded but he would remain ineligible to play for his new team until his suspension is lifted.
Jones was suspended last spring by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Jones missed all of last season and remains under suspension. His case is to be reviewed again sometime before training camps open in July.
The Cowboys already added another of the players suspended by Goodell last year under the conduct policy--defensive tackle Tank Johnson, formerly of the Chicago Bears.
