 IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys and Tennessee Titans are on the clock with their Adam ``Pacman'' Jones trade.
How fast that clock is ticking depends on who you talk to.
The deal still wasn't finalized Friday, two days after the teams agreed in principle and the eve of the NFL draft. The Titans are supposed to get Dallas' fourth-round pick and another pick next year for the rights to the suspended cornerback.
``Clearly it's got to be done tomorrow or else it becomes academic,'' said Jones' agent, Manny Arora.
Not so fast, says Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple. He said the teams were still working out details and that the deal didn't have to be complete before the draft.
The fourth round of the draft isn't until Sunday.
``There's no set timetable or anything,'' Dalrymple said.
The Titans declined to provide any update Friday on the trade's progress. On Thursday, general manager Mike Reinfeldt cautioned that it was a complicated deal.
If the Jones deal goes through, the Cowboys still don't know if he'll play for them this season. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has said he'll decide whether to reinstate Jones by training camp in July and that any trade won't influence him.
Jones has been arrested six times and has been involved in 12 incidents requiring police action since being the top defensive player taken in the 2005 draft. The accumulation led Goodell to suspend Jones for the 2007 season.
If Goodell doesn't let Pacman return in '08, the Cowboys would get back an '09 pick. They're also expected to be giving him a non-guaranteed contract, making it easier to distance themselves from him, if necessary.
The Cowboys were an intriguing draft-day topic before the Jones deal dragged on.
With two first-round picks, owner Jerry Jones could be at his wheeling-and-dealing best. Dallas would like to add a younger but proven receiver to go with aging veterans Terrell Owens and Terry Glenn.
