IRVING, Texas -- Emmitt Smith has some advice for suspended Dallas Cowboys cornerback Pacman Jones: Stay out of trouble.
"As long as you're not killing anybody, getting anybody shot at and going to jail, then I don't have any issues," said Smith, NFL career rushing leader. The former star running back for Dallas was visiting Cowboys rookie minicamp Saturday.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Jones last year for repeatedly violating the league's personal conduct rules. He's been arrested six times and has been involved in 12 matters requiring police intervention.
"Your personal life is your personal life," Smith, an ESPN analyst, added. "Some of the choices you make are not some of the choices I would make. As long as you're out here on the practice field performing like you're supposed to and not getting into any trouble. I'm not going to tell you what you should be doing."
The Cowboys acquired Jones from the Tennessee Titans last week, and Smith said he thought it was a good trade to bolster the Dallas secondary.
"Pacman is a grown man," Smith said. "He understands the do's and don'ts, the rights and wrongs. He has choices to make. Hopefully he starts making better choices."
