That sucks. I hope he continues to get healthy and has a chance to stick somewhere in the league.

He has shown great character befitting a Giant.

Keep working at it Chad!

They signed Will Hill from the Gators. Interesting pair of UDFA safties the Giants have. Both talented both head cases

doubt this means goodbye for good. Jones still has a ways to go in his rehab.

I think insurance was/is.

Whata shame. At this point, it seems like a real, real longshot that he will ever have an NFL career.

I think the Giants stood by him and did all they could for him and now see that he is a long way from playing football.,if ever!

This isn't awful news. The guy may just be a year away from full recovery. Even if he never plays he'll be a stronger guy mentally for having gone through this ordeal and physical rehab and it will help him succeed in any future endeavor. It's a win-win situation.

Hoping the best for Chad! He probably needs another year of rehab and if he does resurface with a team I'm sure it will be the Giants.

He's a very lick guy to have his foot at all, so while this is disappointing, he can still try to get back to playing strength. The report from the Giants doctor who worked with him didn't sound like he was going to be able to do that though. A very tough injury to have, especially since it was off the field. Hope he moves on and has a chance somewhere, maybe for next season.

He is still very young. Another year of rehab and the kid may make it all the way back. I know its a setback for him on the timetable he set for himself but if he looks at the bright side things could be alot worse. Hopefully he goes back and works on whatever areas they told him to do if its physically possible and comes back and trys out for us next offseason and makes it as a walk on

I remember right after his accident i said he would never play in the NFL, and in this instance i really wish i had been wrong. Hope he continues to work toward his goal

Damn, sounds like they feel the leg wouldn't hold up to NFL hits. I'm sad to hear this and I'm still rooting for him.

This guy had a chance to do some good, he didn't safeguard himself. Stay away from fast women and fast cars.

I don't see him giving up and I don't see the GIANTS giving up on him either.

..."at this time he has residual sensory loss, muscle weakness, and tenuous soft tissue coverage in the involved lower leg"

That soft tissue will tear easily unless he continues a gradual strengthening. Time will tell if he can ever make it back, but it won't be from lack of effort and the support of Giant fans.

Yeah, but bound to happen. There is NO way anyone was coming back from that injury to play NFL football again. Great story that he's even alive and walking.

I was always rooting for the kid but lets be honest, he's never going to play at a high level if at all. He was a 3rd round draft pick to begin with. We're not talking about Ed Reed here. Even if the accident never happend there's a good chance he wouldn't even be a starter now. I can't see how anyone wasn't expecting this news.

I don't think he was overly reckless. His wheel got stuck in street car rails and got thrown around. Not sure about the speed though...

Are you serious?

He faild the physical because his leg is not healed. It had nothing to do with drugs.

People need to read Garofolo's piece (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/05/giants_waive_chad_jones_sign_t.html) before speculating.

What drugs? What recklessness? This thread is fraught with some reckless or at the very least, ignorant, opinion.

Garofolo points out:

<blockquote>...under the 90-man roster established this offseason, there are no roster exemptions for players on reserve lists.

</blockquote>But, the Giants will...

<blockquote>The team said in a press release, it will continue to work with Jones in
his rehab, and if he recovers sufficiently to return to the field, the
team would be open to that coming in a Giants uniform.

</blockquote>In the Daily News (http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/giants/ny-giants-cut-safety-chad-jones-lost-leg-2010-car-accident-article-1.1078084), Vacchiano quotes his agent Arceneaux:

<blockquote><p style="margin-left: 40px;">
"We would like to thank the Giants organization for the manner in which
they have supported Chad since his unfortunate accident two years ago,"
Arceneaux said. "Their genuine support and caring has far exceeded
their obligations and he and his family will be eternally grateful."</p></blockquote>


And Jerry Reese...
</p><blockquote><p style="margin-left: 40px;">
"We consider Chad to be part of the Giants family, and we'll continue
to work with him in his rehab," Reese said. "As we've said since his
accident, we're thankful he is alive and able to lead a normal life."</p></blockquote>It's simply a matter of it being too soon for right now. If Jones optimistic view is correct, he could pass another physical in two months and still possibly make the training camp, but the Giants think it won't happen this early.

Keep Chad in your prayers for a full recovery.

"Jones has undergone more than a dozen surgeries and has a metal rod through his shin, with two screws near his ankle and two screws under his kneecap. He nearly died in a car accident on June 25, 2010 but doctors scrambled to save Jones' foot and leg during 10 hours of surgery" Holy ****

The best thing that ever happened to Chad Jones was the New York Giants.</P>


The guy almost severed off part of his leg. It was unreasonable to expect that he could come back from that and play pro football. I said at the time that we all needed to just hope that he could have a normal life. I suppose its possible for him to play but highly unlikely.</P>


The Giants knew this too. They have paid and supported him for 2 years. They couldn't have had very much in the way of expectations. Mr. Mara and the rest of the organization needs to be acknowledged for doing such a great thing for this young man.</P>


Not sure how many other teams would have done this.</P>

Hey... Can a Mod please review this post from the beginning and pick up on this poster, Giantman8493... continuing to push a drug angle where none exists. In his post, above, Greenzone did an excellent job of explaining that drugs were not an issue, yet he persists. Incredibly annoying to continue inferring that C. Jones problem is drugs.
At the least he should be warned that he is irresponsible.

Could not agree more. Doing the right thing is very important to the Giants and their fans. I applaud the Giants and all of the fans on this board for their honor and compassion.
