Jake Ballard Could Be Back in the NFL Soon
A torn ACL during the Super Bowl derailed his career, ultimately resulting in the Patriots pilfering him from the waiver wire as the Giants tried to slip Ballard through to a reserve list in 2012.
Come 2013, Ballard wasn’t deemed to be good enough to help the tight end hungry Patriots, and so he was cut. He could soon be returning to the game.
Per a league source, Ballard has spent the last four weeks working with trainers and medical professionals to get back to 100 percent. Teams have wanted to bring him in, but he has resisted.
