Damn streetcar tracks!!
Jones was involved in a single-car crash in New Orleans during the early morning hours of June 25, 2010. He lost control of his Range Rover while trying to get off streetcar tracks and hit a pole.[2] Two of the passengers in his car suffered minor injuries.[3] Jones's most serious injuries were to his left ankle and leg, which include a broken tibia and fibula.[4]

Re: Saints expected to work out Chad Jones

Also, former Tiger great Chad Jones is reportedly turning his attention to pro baseball. It probably goes without saying that I admire the heck out of Jones' for his tenacity, his perseverance and his amazing recovery. I know I speak for all of you when I say the Tiger Nation couldn’t be prouder of Chad Jones and his Fighting Tiger spirit, and we’ll be pulling for him in this new chapter of his life. While the chapter may be new, its subject is certainly not. Although many of us first think of Chad Jones as a dominating All-SEC football player, he was also a heck of a baseball player at LSU and an elite baseball prospect out of high school. After graduating from Southern Lab, Jones was selected by the Houston Astros in the 13th-round of the MLBD, but turned them down to sign with LSU. As a Tiger, Jones was part of the 2009 National Championship Baseball Team and hit .343 with a home run and six RBI as a junior. He also pitched in nine games, allowing four hits and striking out seven in six and two-thirds innings. (2.70 ERA). Who will ever forget the championship game of the College World Series in 2009, when Jones entered in relief to pitch against Texas? You can relive highlights of that game here, but if you want to jump directly to Jones’s in the sixth, fast-forward to the 6:09 mark. Late last night I saw a tweet stating that Jones worked out for a Rays scout yesterday and threw an 87-89 MPH fastball and a solid curveball.

Unless he has Greg Maddox control and gets the off the plate calls that Maddox got, 87-89 MPH won't cut it in MLB. Wish him luck though.

Omg I misread this at first, I was thinking Chad Johnson and my reaction was no no no no no no. But now I'm pleased that we are trying out Chad Jones.

He ran a 4.6 40 before the accident and runs a 4.9 now.

His velocity will pick up, he probably hasn't picked up a baseball in a while. You dont just step on a mound and start thtowing 93-94 mph. Unless you're Randy Johnson.
