<a class="sbn-auto-link" href="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/2224/brandon-jacobs">Brandon
Jacobs</a> made it clear to the Giants he wants to return for one more season.

The two sides met over the weekend at the NFL scouting combine, but
according to a source familiar with the conversations they did not come close to

running back at a greatly reduced salary, the source said, and itís not clear
how much of a cut Jacobs is willing to take.</p>

(Rob) Gronkowski and (Aaron) Hernandez and what weíve seen in the NFL.
Everybodyís looking for that next guy. I donít have a first-round grade in the
tight end class. Iíve got three second-round grades and then Iíve got kind of an
abyss."</p>
