          He is still signed for another year but all be shocked if they honour it due to the fact its some what high.




          Big fan of Jacobs personally and we may never see someone of his size and speed play Hb again.

            The way players have " grown " over the years would not be surprised to see many backs his size down the road. That, and lineman will be 350- 400 #s with speed [:O]

              I completely agree. Atheletes in basketball and football especially are getting bigger, faster and stronger. There never were guys like Lebron James or JPP or Brandon Jacobs 30 years ago.

                He is due 4.4 mil this spring. He wont get that. We will renegotiate or he will be cut.

                I hate that this is the case, but he obviously knows it to be true too.

                      I hope we keep him, I love the fact that the Giants always want a big back. Before it was Ron Dayne (not the greatest but he did provide a good change of pace). I don't know how many times defenses are ready for Bradshaw to cut it back and prepare for his speed, then we put in Jacobs and he just runs through people. You can't prepare for how jacobs runs.

                        He is still under contract so he should still be here.

                          Maybe we could try to keep him as or Director of Public Relations. Just kidding, I love the guy and hope he's a Giant for years to come.

                            He restructured it.....not exactly sure how but I'm assuming he took a cut this year and they backloaded the contract with that $$$ for next year hence the 4.4 the Giants owe him........if they cut him he doesn't get paid.




                            I love the guy I hope he comes back.....but it's a business decision......too many apples to juggle.

                              I say we keep him and Osi. Reese and Osi will sit down and work out a new deal after this season. I'm confident
