Jones went through his second day of offseason workouts with the Dallas Cowboys since commissioner Roger Goodell said this week that Jones could join his new team at practice. It was the first session open to the media, and the first with Pro Bowl receiver Terrell Owens also on the field.
At the end of his first practice in more than a year Tuesday, Jones intercepted a pass - thrown by third-stringer Richard Bartel, not Pro Bowl starter Tony Romo - and returned it about 60 yards to the end zone.
Owens missed Tuesday's practice, when he was in New York for NFL business before returning to Texas to sign his new $34 million contract through the 2011 season. Owens said he looked forward to working against Jones.
``I'm pretty sure it's going to be some heated battles,'' Owens said Tuesday. ``It's going to be a challenge. ... It's all about competition. I feel like if I can go against some of the best every day, it makes the games that much easier.''
Jones, acquired by the Cowboys from Tennessee in April, can also take part in training camp and preseason games, but remains suspended from the regular season. Goodell will rule on that by Sept. 1, six days before the Cowboys' opener.
Jones missed all the 2007 season while suspended from the NFL following an accumulation of arrests and legal problems, including his connection to a shooting at a Las Vegas strip club.
