New York Giants News And Notes: Chad Jones And More

Good morning, Super Bowl champion New York Giants fans! That phrase never gets old. Let's look around the Inter-Google for some news and notes related to the Giants.

Chad Jones will be at Giants' offseason program | New York Daily News
Chad Jones still has a long road back to an NFL field, but he hopes to be able to take the next steps on (or around) April 16.

The plan right now is for the injured safety to join the Giants' offseason workout program, which opens that day, nearly 22 months after he almost lost his leg in a horrific car accident. Jones has been rehabbing hard near his home in Louisiana and he's said many times he has his sights set on playing for the Giants in 2012.

Whether he can or not remains to be seen. At the offseason workout program at the Giants' Meadowlands practice facility he'll continue to rehab his injured left leg in the hopes that at some point he'll be able to pass the Giants' team physical. So far he hasn't, so it's impossible to know if he'll be ready to participate in any on-field spring workouts, mini-camp, or even training camp when it opens this summer.

"I think everyone knows it is a quarterback-driven league,’’ Sullivan said. "No matter how you slice it -- and, ultimately, defense wins championships -- but you have to get a quarterback. I think a lot of things you look at with a guy like Josh Freeman -- the skill set he possesses, the youth, the ability, the size and the strength -- there is an awful lot there and I am chomping at the bit to work with.’’

You guys might laugh at this one. There was also word on Wednesday that the Buccaneers are interested in failed New York Giants defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan to potentially fill that role in Tampa Bay.
