Jake Ballard was born December 2, 1987 and is an American football tight end for the New York Giants of the National Football League. He was signed by the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2010. He played college football at Ohio State.

Ballard was signed by the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent following the 2010 NFL Draft on April 25, 2010. He was waived/injured after suffering a hamstring injury during training camp on August 19. He was re-signed to the team's practice squad on September 5. He was promoted to the active roster on November 20. He played in the game against the Philadelphia Eagles the following day, playing eights snaps. He was waived on November 23, and re-signed to the practice squad the following day. He was promoted to the active roster again on December 16. 

Ballard played in the November 6, 2011 game against the New England Patriots (5-2) at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, finishing the day with 67 receiving yards, including a 28-yard catch on 3rd and 10 with :51 left and the subsequent 1-yard touchdown catch with just 17 seconds to play. The Giants won the game 24-20 to maintain a 2-game lead in the NFC East and hand the Patriots their second straight loss for the first time since 2009 (and first in 21 consecutive games at home).

Ballard made a catch on the game winning drive in the game on November 6, 2011 that has been compared to the great catch that David Tyree made in Super Bowl XLII. Coincidentally, both players wore No. 85 at the time of their catches.

On August 6, 2014 Ballard announced his retirement from the NFL because "[a]fter sustaining a serious knee injury while playing for the New York Giants in the Super Bowl, my body never felt the same. Having a quality of life after football is very important to me and I have witnessed it taken away from others."
