With Chad Jones' potential return drawing nearer, and with him (by all accounts) not just rehabbing, but training with a new level of fire and intensity, how would YOU use him?
According to the latest story on him from NJ.com, Jones' is sitting at 238lbs, squatting 400lbs for reps, and doubling his bench press reps. Its safe to say that he's rebuilt the strength that made him a terrifying hitter at LSU. He's also working feverishly to rebuild the speed, quickness, and agility that made scouts say he had the potential to be the best safety in his class, which included Eric Berry and Earl Thomas.
His trainer is will be asking the Giants if he should add 5lbs for the LB position, or drop 15 for Safety.
So, its time to put on your DC cap.
Myself, personally, I'd tell him to drop weight down to 225-230 and use him in the Deon Grant S/LB hybrid role. He's got to be quicker than Grant is NOW let alone come July/August. as well, I'd want to take some weight off to ease the pressure on his leg.
