Can OT Jarron Jones make it with Giants this time?

Converted defensive tackle has second chance

Jarron Jones is an interesting case, having been converted from defensive to offensive tackle a year ago, then bouncing around the league.

Jones is back with the Giants, so let’s look at him as we continue our player-by-player profiles of the 90-man roster the Giants will bring to training cam.p

2017 season in review

The Giants signed the undrafted Jones as a defensive tackle, which was the position he played at Notre Dame. After a handful of practices, the Giants moved the 6-foot-6, 320-pound Jones to offensive tackle — a position he had not played since high school.

When the Giants cut him at the end of the preseason he landed on the practice squad of the Seattle Seahawks. He also spent time last season the practice squad of the Dallas Cowboys. Jones was waived by the Cowboys last month.

2018 outlook

Hard to say. The Giants’ new regime obviously likes something about Jones, or the team wouldn’t have brought him in for another try.

As was the case a year ago, though, it would seem like Jones is likely fighting for a spot on the practice squad rather than the season-opening 53-man roster.
