Cowboys: Pacman's Playing, TO's Staying

IRVING -- When Terrell Owens signed with the Dallas Cowboys two years ago -- he told fans to get their popcorn ready.

When Owens signed an extension today, the club had the popcorn
ready for him - a giant bowl of the buttery stuff, big enough to
feed the entire offensive line.

Owens signed a three-year extension worth around 27 million
dollars -- plus a seven million dollar bonus.

The deal prevents Owens from going through this season as a
free-agent-to-be and locks him up through 2011, when he turns 38.

Team owner Jerry Jones plainly said he wants Owens to finish his
career wearing a Cowboys star on his helmet.

The signing came the same day embattled cornerback Adam
"Pacman" Jones was allowed to practice with Dallas for the first
time.
...
Here's more:
-- On the final play of drills, Jones intercepted a pass - from
third-stringer Richard Bartel, not Tony Romo - and returned it 80
yards for a touchdown.

Jones wouldn't say whether he was surprised by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's decision to let Pacman - who's been suspended since April 2007 - practice and play in pre-season games.

Goodell will decide Pacman's regular-season status by September
1st.

Jones was an elite cornerback and kick returner in his first two
seasons with the Tennessee Titans, but an accumulation of arrests
and legal problems led to his spring 2007 suspension.
