NEW YORK GIANTS: THE RETURN OF CHAD JONES (http://network.yardbarker.com/nfl/article_external/new_york_giants_the_return_of_chad_jones/10312621)

"Drafted in the 3<sup>rd</sup>round (#76) in the 2010 NFL Draft, Chad
Jones was once considered a steal for the New York Giants. However;
since his accident many fanshave forgotten about the Safety out of LSU.
Fortunately, the Giants haven't forgotten as they have reconstructed the
remaining two years of Jones' contract; which indicates that they feel Jones can
still be a productive player on the team. Here's a look athis pre-draft
scouting report:

“Jones was called the best athlete on
the team by many of his LSU Tiger teammates and it would be hard to argue such
an assessment. Jones has been blessed with natural athletic
talent, standing at an imposing 6'3' and 230 pounds. He can run under 4.5 in the
40-yard dash, has great hands, and--not surprisingly--was one of the hardest
hitters in Baton Rouge. Jones started to put all of those tools
together on the football field as a junior in 2009. Playing on an LSU defense
that has always been loaded, Jones did not start as a freshman
(although he contributed significantly) and he started six games as a sophomore.
Emerging as a potent defensive force in 2009, Jones finished fifth on the team
with 74 total tackles and tied for fourth with 37 assists. He led the squad with
three interceptions and he recorded both a blocked kick and a forced fumble.
Jones also returned a punt for a 93-yard touchdown in the
fourth quarter of a 30-26 victory over Mississippi State. Jones never put up
star quality numbers in college, in part because he lacked a ton of experience
and decided to enter the NFL Draft following his junior season. Had he decided
to return for his senior campaign, Jones could have found himself in the first
round of the 2011 draft.”

Unfortunately in June of 2010, Jones
was involved in a horrible car accident that nearly cost him his life.
He's been recovering ever since and it’s been a long road, but Jones has made
some tremendous strides in recent months. Jonesis at 80% and
barring any unforeseen setbacks, Jones should be ready to re-join the Giants
when training camp begins. However, a spot on the team is not a certainty and
he'll have to earn his way on, with Antrel Rolle, Kenny
Phillips and Tyler Sash all guaranteed spots,
Jones' competition will come from any free agents/rookies the
Giants add to the roster.

Other Footnotes: The Giants
GM Jerry Reese addressed a pressing need this week by
re-signing 3 of his own players who had their 2011 seasons cut short by
injuries: Corner-Back’s Terrell Thomas, Michael Coe and
Justin Tryon. This will give the Giants the needed depth –
along with the draft – for training camp.

Here is a list of players the
Giants have either retained or brought under contract since Super Bowl
XLVI:


03/13/2012 Joel Reinders (OL) – signed to new
contract

03/13/2012 Larry Donnell (TE) – signed to new
contract

03/13/2012 Michael Coe (CB) – signed to new
contract

03/13/2012 Justin Tryon (CB) – signed to
new contract

03/13/2012 Terrell Thomas (CB) – signed to
new contract

03/05/2012 Steve Weatherford (P) –
designated Franchise Tag

03/02/2012 Domenik Hixon (WR) –
signed to new contract 02/14/2012

Chris White (C) –
signed as free agent

02/14/2012 Ryan Purvis (TE) –
signed as free agent

02/14/2012 Craig Marshall (DE) –
signed as free agent

What makes GM Reese so successful
are the little moves he makes. Reese finds players that fit
into the Giants system and if he selects enough, a few should develop into solid
players to contribute to the success of the team."

Can you imagine if chad and kenny both didn't get injuries? Man or safeties would of been historic. The more I read about Jones, the more I feel he was a superstar steal for the giants pre injury.

He just wants to play for the Giants.

He's said he'll come into camp as whatever they want (supposedly he asked back in Dec/Jan if he should add or subtract 10-15lbs to be either LB or S)

I don't care where he plays. LB or his original S position. In fact I don't care if he just makes it as a ST player. It would be the Feel good/Comeback player of the year type story.

Couple that with Mark Herzlich and u have a lot to look forward to next season. Heck throw in Marvin Jones who has not played in 3 yrs and Reese's project when he was drafted JPP and Cruz and u have 5 guys no one expected to do much Due to certain circumstances and so far two have panned out to Super Stardom. Stay tuned for the other 3 next season

Betting Jones being the Hybrid LB/S b/c he's too small to be a full time LB and his COD is likely not coming back for S.

The rule changes might have saved his career as a guy of his size and agility might be perfect for covering TE's down in the box.

Who's Marvin Jones - is he a hyrbid of Chad Jones and Marvin Austin?

He is 6'3" 230lbs. </P>


Michael Boley: 6'3'' 230lbs
Greg Jones 6'0'' 245lbs
Paysinger 6'2'' 236lbs
Jaquan Williams 6'3'' 224lbs</P>


Too small? </P>


Oh, and he would be the fastest LB we have by far. </P>

Maybe pre injury he would have been the fastest but Williams, Boley and Paysinger can run very well. Not sure about Jones, he just just slowed. Maybe Chad can take his spot.

LB is not a big position. Average backer is like 6'2 240lb. btw, he not faster than J Will.

Jones ran a 4.5 40 at 6'2" 221lbs BEFORE he damaged his leg. Jacquian ran a 4.55 40 at 6'3" 231lbs. Boley a 4.56 at 6'3" 236lbs.

Unless they made Chad into the bionic man he would not be our fastest linebacker!

Imagine Jones and Herzlich on the same field? Two guys who were only supposed to have two legs between them?

I thought he was smaller than what the boards were saying. Not that any of that matters much. It will be; however, a fun story to watch.

he could end up playing the Deon Grant role.
His doctors think his 40 time will be around 4.6 and they say he is a lot stronger than when he got in the accident. Apparently he has been working out a lot while doing his physical therapy. Natural athletes like him don't seem to have problems getting back into shape. Let's hope his instincts are still there. I can think of athletes who overcame things like this... Namely Mario Lemieux and Mark Herzlich.

It said at 6'3" 230 Jones ran a sub 4.5 40 time. Yes before he got injured correct. They are about the same height and weight. So, I'm ok with him Running a 4.6 post injury. He isn't too small to play LB , was my main point there.

Jones is going to make the team and is going to impress.

Our D is going to be absolutely REDONKULOUS if we can stay healthy

If he makes it back on to the field it would be a amazing story.
