Suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones will again ask NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to reinstate him, with his agent planning to send in his latest request on Tuesday. Jones had planned to ask to be reinstated before the NFL draft on April 26-27. His agent, Manny Arora, said that being able to work out for teams would increase Jones' appeal to those in the market for a cornerback.

Arora said they still hope Jones will be traded before the draft, and they are ready to rework his contract. Arora also said that if they can't get Jones reinstated they hope to at least ease the terms of his suspension, now going on more than a year, to make him more attractive. The Dallas Cowboys have shown the most interest. But the talks reportedly have stalled over compensation. (More NFL stories.)
