Ex-Giants SS Chad Jones Will Try Baseball After Failed NFL Comeback
Former Giants third-round pick Chad Jones has decided to turn his focus on a comeback in football to professional baseball.
"He appreciates all of the support from the Giants and their fans," said John Moran, the Southern Orthopaedic Specialists physical therapist who helped Jones walk and run again. "He gave 100-percent to football for over two years to reach his goal of returning to football. He is fortunate to have the athletic ability and skill set to perform in the MLB.
"His heart was and probably always will be in football," Moran added in a text message, confirming a report by New Orleans' WDSU TV that Jones was switching to baseball. "But he knew it was time to transition to baseball as a pitcher and/or outfielder."
Jones nearly died in a single-automobile crash in New Orleans in late June of 2010, just a few months after the Giants drafted him in the third round out of LSU. The axle of his SUV snapped and mangled his leg.
