Cowboys cornerback Pacman Jones gave new buddy Tank Johnson a call when he was reinstated on Monday. Johnson has helped Pacman since he joined the team, guiding him with his transition and trying to steer him down the right path, since he has been there himself.
''He said I will be out there tomorrow and I told him I have been looking forward to it for a long time,'' Johnson said. ''We're excited for him and especially me, because I have been down that path.''
Tank on the Cowboys watching Pacman at practice: ''Anytime you have a playmaker like that of
his caliber you've got to watch him, because if you blink your eye he's going to be going the other way. Just like yesterday when he took a pick to the house. They said, 'There's goes that man' -- because he's dang good at what he does.''
Tank on if Pacman can stay out of trouble: ''I'm sure he's going to do his very best. I am pretty confident he will do his best. He knows what's at stake and more importantly he knows what he has to be a part of. The good side of it is he has a chance to be a part of something special and he takes that very seriously.''
