Should the New Orleans Saints sign Chad Jones?

Chad Jones' comeback from a horrific injury took an interesting turn Thursday when news broke that he might try out for the New Orleans Saints. Discussions between his agent, Rocky Arceneaux, and team officials were expected to begin now that Jones has received medical clearance to resume full-speed and contact work.


Former LSU football player Chad Jones would probably need to switch from safety to linebacker to make the team.
Before his injury, Jones was considered a top safety prospect. He was selected in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the New York Giants. However, injuries to his ankle and leg have robbed him of some of his speed, burst and agility. Consequently, some NFL scouts think his best chance to return to the NFL will be at linebacker.

With that in mind, do you think the Saints should sign the former LSU safety? Leave your thoughts in our comment section below.

Re: Should the New Orleans Saints sign Chad Jones?

I don't think they should sign him just to be signing him. It looks as though his times are pretty slow for a DB. But if his times have gotten faster and he can actually help the team then I'd be for it. We aren't desperate enough to sign someone just for the sake of signing them.

I think it's more of a case of seeing if he has enough in him to try out in preseason for the 2013 season.

If he looks 100% healthy, why not?
If he still runs a 4.9, probably not.

If he's proper healthy and gameday ready, sure

Like danno said, if he's not there physically then we shouldn't

Could we sign him to a futures contract?

You never know.

Of course he has to make the grade physically. But the guy may have the know-how and we have seen already that is something the Saints are a bit lacking with.

What could it hurt, let him try to make the team. I love a second chance player with something to prove.

If he can play, even help out on special teams do it. Having someone on the team that dug themselves out of a hopeless situation inspires others on and off the field.
