Cornerback Adam Jones, released by the Dallas Cowboys in February, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL.

 ”It’ll be a good experience for me to get back in game shape and compete and play football, which I like to do,” Jones told SI.com, which first reported the story. “I’m real happy for the opportunity that’s been given to me. Of course it’s disappointing to me to not be playing in the NFL. But things happen and you have to adjust.”

Jones, 25, chose the CFL over the inaugural United Football League, Jones’ agents told SI.com. One of the factors was money — contract details were not immediately known — but Jones also will be able to play on both sides of the ball in the CFL, which still has 10 weeks remaining in its season. The four teams in the UFL will be playing a six-game schedule beginning in October.

The Cowboys acquired Jones from the Tennessee Titans during the draft in April 2008, after he was suspended by the league for the entire 2007 season following multiple off-field incidents while with the Titans.
