NFL Notebook: Three teams express interest in 'Pac-Man'

Adam "Pac-Man" Jones is trying hard for a 2010 comeback.
At least three teams -- the Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals -- have expressed "great interest" in the troubled cornerback, though no signing was imminent, agent Ray Savage said. Savage said he hoped to set up in-person visits with those teams.
"Nothing's imminent, and I'm hopeful to schedule visits here in the next week or two," said Savage, whose comments came two days after Detroit coach Jim Schwartz said the Lions were "definitely interested" in signing Jones.
Schwartz said Wednesday at the NFL meetings that the Lions were gathering more information about Jones' level of commitment and how he could fit in Detroit's system.
The Lions were among a few teams that worked out Jones last week in New Orleans. Savage said Jones worked out earlier in the year for the Bengals "and we're hopeful that we'll be back in Cincinnati here in the next week. And we're trying to coordinate with San Francisco to get out there and meet with them."
The parent company of the firm that built the Dallas' ruined practice facility said it has filed for protection from its creditors under Canadian law governing bankruptcies. In a statement, Saskatchewan-based Cover-All Building Systems Inc. said it will seek to restructure its finances under court supervision while continuing "limited operations."
A Cover-All subsidiary, Summit Structures LLC of Allentown, Pa., was responsible for the steel and fabric Cowboys' facility that collapsed in a wind storm in May. The disaster left team scout Rich Behm paralyzed from the waist down and caused special teams coach Joe DeCamillas to suffer a broken vertebrae.
Both have filed lawsuits accusing Cover-All, Summit and others of gross negligence.
