NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has informed the Dallas Cowboys that cornerback Adam Jones has been fully reinstated and will be eligible to play in the Cowboys' season opener against Cleveland.
"This is another step in the process," said Jones. "I am very grateful for this opportunity, and I understand my responsibilities to the Dallas Cowboys and the National Football League. Right now I just want to keep working hard so I can accomplish the goals that I have set for myself both on and off the field."
Jones, who was traded to Dallas from Tennessee earlier this year, received partial reinstatement to the league on June 2.
At the time, he was only allowed to participate in organized team activities as well as training camp and preseason games.
Jones has been arrested six times and has been involved in 12 total incidents with the police during his NFL career, but has kept out of trouble his first few months with the Cowboys.
"Adam has worked hard to get to this point, but he also knows that there is still a lot of work ahead of him," said Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones. "He is fully aware of the opportunity that he has been given, and he knows that this is an ongoing process."
