Pacman Jones, or Pac as Wade Phillips likes to call him, spoke to the
He’s been working out with Prime Time for the last month and has been practicing his route trees, his back pedal and being patient in his breaks.

Keep an eye on that as Pacman gets more acclimated to the defense. I know there’s been a lot of discussion about Pacman’s talent level and his ability to shake the rust off after a year, but I am very optimistic on that front.

If he’s not, he will be the nickel corner, not Mike Jenkins, and will definitely contribute on special teams. He’s one of the better CB’s in this league on talent and should have no problem reclaiming his former level of play.
And finally, a request of Roy Williams - please quit hitting our own players.
**Roy Williams put a nice lick - inadvertently - on running back Felix Jones tht had the rookie wondering what happened.
