After their initial trade offer of a seventh-round draft pick for Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was declined, the Dallas Cowboys have added a player to their proposal, according to a report on SI.com Thursday.

The Titans are considering the deal but need to address some financial issues before they accept the offer, according to the report. Jones has two years left on his original five-year, $30 million contract, and the Cowboys want to redo the deal, likely to one year.

"The kid was the sixth pick in the [2005] draft and we need to get something of value in return," an unnamed Titans official told SI.com.

Jones has stated his willingness to renegotiate the contract and his agent, Manny Arora, met with Cowboys officials earlier this week.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher seemed to indicate the team was ready to sever ties with the suspended cornerback.

"We've given them permission to look for a new home and whatever happens after that happens," Fisher told The Tennessean. "He's entitled to his opinion. I know he has enjoyed the time that he has spent here on the football field. But because of his choices and such off the field, he's created a situation where he's going to have to look elsewhere."

Fisher told the newspaper that didn't mean the Titans were officially finished with Jones.

"All we can do is move forward and if we're able to put something together that we think is good, then we'll just wait on the commissioner's decision," Fisher told The Tennessean. "It's a peculiar situation, one that's a result of [Jones'] personal choices, and it's really just in the commissioner's hands."

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Thursday that it was possible for Jones to be traded while suspended. But Fisher did not think a trade could be seen as a reward for Jones.

"Last year when he was suspended by the commissioner in the offseason, we moved on," Fisher told the newspaper. "So those are not issues as far as we are concerned."
