Good for the Tennessee Titans

There is little doubt Pacman Jones is a talented football player. There also is little doubt Pacman Jones rarely can go anywhere without trouble following him.

And there is little doubt new Tennessee Titans general manager Mike Reinfeldt made his first big splash Friday when he told reporters it's a possibility Jones would not be a Titan in 2007.

The comment is big news on several fronts.

One Jones is the team's best cornerback and one of the top punt returners in the NFL, having returned three kicks for scores this year.

Two, Jones was a former first-round pick by the Titans.

At any rate, Reinfeldt's statement shows the Titans aren't willing to put up with any more of Jones' off-the-field antics, which have overshadowed anything the cornerback has done on the field. And that's a step in the right direction for professional teams in all sports.
