Agent Michael Huyghue said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell never ruled out training camp or preseason games when he suspended the cornerback for the 2007 season for his off-field conduct. Jones can have his case reviewed after the Titans' 10th game.
``Now we're optimistic that Pac will get to participate in training camp and play in preseason games,'' Huyghue said. ``We don't want to get ahead of ourselves. That's a determination the commissioner is going to make.''
A message to the NFL was not immediately returned Tuesday. The Titans did not respond to messages seeking comment. They have declined to comment on Jones since June 20, when Las Vegas authorities announced they were charging the cornerback with two felony counts of coercion.
Jones dropped his appeal of the suspension June 12, and Huyghue said the commissioner has allowed Jones to visit the Titans more than the once-weekly visit in the original suspension.
News of Jones possibly taking part in training camp first was reported by ESPN.com.
