Pacman's agent optimistic deal can be made with Dallas Cowboys

Manny Arora, the agent for suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Pacman Jones, said he's optimistic that a trade can be worked out with the Cowboys before the NFL draft on April 26.

The Titans and Cowboys are in discussions for a trade but have reached an impasse on compensation. Dallas is offering a late-round draft selection, but the Titans want two picks over the next two seasons.

Arora said Jones will apply for reinstatement before Tuesday.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he will review Jones' case before training camps start in late July.

Arora said once a deal is done, his client is willing to redo his existing contract with the Cowboys. However, a source said the Titans want Jones to repay some of his signing bonus to help facilitate the trade. But the Titans also owe Jones performance bonus money earned during the 2006 season. Jones has told the Titans they don't have to pay him the performance bonus if he doesn't have to give back some of his signing bonus.

UT's Sweed to visit with Cowboys: The Cowboys have added Texas receiver Limas Sweed to the list of players to visit Valley Ranch next week for a predraft interview.

The 6-4, 210-pound wide receiver played in only six games last season because of a left wrist injury. He aggravated the injury in the Senior Bowl but performed well at the Longhorns' pro day. He finished his college career with 124 catches for 1,915 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Sweed is one of four receivers confirmed to be visiting, along with Missouri's Will Franklin, Oklahoma's Malcolm Kelly and Indiana's James Hardy.
