Chad Jones 40yrd dash, 15 months later...



15 months after his horrendous accident, The Giants' 3rd round pick from 2010 ran his first 40 yard dash.

Chad's original time (back in the '10 combine) was 4.57sec.

 

Today, after almost losing his life and leg, and enduring 15 months of grueling rehab, Chad clocked a 4.84sec 40. For those who don't feel like whipping out their calculators, that's only .027 seconds off his original time. Or, for a more recent comparison, .04sec FASTER than Akeem Ayers' time.

 

He has repeatedly said that he expects to be in Giants training camp come 2012, and more recently that he feels he can surpass his previous numbers. Both of these look more likely than ever.

 

I am loathe to use the word "miraculous" when talking about Chad's recovery, because I feel that doesn't give him enough credit for all the hard work and dedication he has put in, nor does it give respect to the hardship and pain he has endured. I'll go with "Amazing" or maybe "Phenomenal".

 

Also: Major Kudos to the Giants organization for sticking with Chad and helping him and his family through his ordeal when so many other organizations would have cast him aside with a simple press release. This is why I'm a fan of the New York Football Giants.
