    Unless the FO want a back to tip-toe around the line of scrimmage i'd say the chances are slim to none.

        He set the tone of the running game going nowhere and 3 and outs all game by crafty foot work that lead to running into the back of his blockers and getting arm tackled 4 of 5 plays given to him. Let it go allready with that guy. He sucks.

          A bring back BJ thread...the draft cannot come soon enough.
          Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

Linebackers have always bit on the playaction because they never wanted jacobs to get a full head of steam...We need a big back who can get short yards and i dont see any out there right now and if we are entertaining the old cardinal rb Hightower, than maybe we should give jacobs another shot.....He said he only wants to play for the Giants....Bring em back!!!!!
            He will definitely solve our passing down blocking problems but there's just not enough of a need to have him back in blue, sorry.

              We've had this exact topic 6 times in the past month.........tiresome.
              No one remembers who came in second.

                I'd say slim to none, but slim would be to great a margin.

                  While Jacobs may not be the guy we are not "set" at RB - it would be more surprising to me if they didn't bring in a vet. They are currently looking at hightower. It's wilsons job to rotate with AB but they will most likely bring in some experience as well for depth with Scott.

                    Of course, if Jacobs decides to retire I'd hope we sign him for a 1 day retirement contract.

                        ugh, r u guys kidding? id be all for BJ spelling Wilson and Brown. Just give him a few carries a game of pure bull doze and make that clear before signing him. I bet he felt disrepected enough to where he would be hungry, and he's had a yr off on his body...vet min, back up role, vocal leader, and prob still could be used effectively...u guys hating on it are being ridic

                          Seriously, when was the last time Jacobs bulldozed anybody? He was incredibly ineffective in short yardage his last year as a Giant, and he couldn't even get on the field in San Fran. Past performance is not guarantee of future success- in stocks, and in old athletes.

                            Cuz real fans love the players not just the logo on the helmet. I say bring him back too if he's willing to sign for vet min and be a situational player. Nobody can deny his blocking skills or his running ability when he runs downhill and actually has a hole to go through

                              I dunno, it might be tough to pull him away from all the other offers he is receiving from teams around the league.

                                This right here. How short our memories are. My last memory of Jacobs playing for the Giants was more of him tip-toeing than bulldozing anyone. I think what we have on the roster is head and shoulders above anything that he could provide at this point.
