Well, here's a name we thought we'd heard the last of: Pacman Jones.

The former Titans and Cowboys cornerback, whose myriad off-field problems derailed the career of the former first-round draft pick, will be taking part in Tulane's pro day workout today in New Orleans in hopes of an NFL return.

The Saints, Lions, Jaguars and 49ers are expected to be on hand, and depending on how the workout goes, Jones could soon be back in the NFL.

Wondeful ... (eyeroll).

Jones, 26, was a first-round pick of the Titans in 2005, but lasted only two seasons before being suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell following several arrests and involvement in a melee that led to a triple shooting at a Las Vegas strip club on Feb. 9, 2007.

He was suspended for the 2007 season, but was signed the next year by the Cowboys and reinstated shortly before the 2008 season.

But Jones was involved in a scuffle with a bodyguard at a Dallas hotel on Oct. 8, 2008, and was suspended four games by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. He returned, only to suffer a neck injury, and made it back for the Cowboys' final game of the season.

The Cowboys announced on Jan. 7, 2009 that they were releasing Jones, who did not play last season.
