WWL: Chad Jones will work out for Saints

Report: Chad Jones will work out for Saints | ProFootballTalk
The Ravens and 49ers are the football teams getting all the attention in New Orleans this week, but the Saints are taking care of some business as well.

According to a report from WWL-TV, one item on their to-do list is to have safety Chad Jones in for a workout. Jones had his career derailed by a June 2010 car accident in New Orleans that left him with serious injuries to his left leg that led to some fear he would have difficulty walking again.

He worked diligently to eliminate that fear and kept working to try to return to the Giants, who had drafted him in the third round that year. Jones was never able to get back on the field, though, and the Giants waived him last May.

The prospect of Jones, who grew up in New Orleans and went to LSU, making a comeback with the Saints after three years trying to get back what he lost in the accident sounds like something Hollywood would dream up. It also makes it pretty easy to root for.

I'm rooting for him. The guy is blessed to have a leg much less a shot at an NFL career
