Jake Ballard Waived: Former Giants TE, Agent Believe New York Will Re-Sign Ballard In 2013

Former New York Giants tight end Jake Ballard and his agent both agree that the Giants will re-sign Ballard...in 2013.

Ballard tweeted "Thanks for love everyone but don't worry, its a business, I'm on the road to recovery, and I believe I'll be in a Giants uniform in '13" (via Twitter)

Ballard's agent retweeted Ballard's statement above and said that he believes that his client will be with the Giants "for a long time." (via Twitter)

Ballard finished the 2011 season fourth on the Giants in receptions with 38. He had 604 yards and four touchdown receptions on the season and another 43 yards on five catches in the playoffs before tearing his ACL in Super Bowl XLVI against the New England Patriots. Ballard was waived on Monday after failing a physical.
