    NY GIANTS' NEWS AND NOTES: BRANDON JACOBS, STEVE SMITH, CHANDLER JONES

    NY GIANTS' NEWS AND NOTES: BRANDON JACOBS, STEVE SMITH, CHANDLER JONES

    Excerpt: "Good morning, New York Giants
    fans! Here are your Saturday morning news and notes, including more information
    about the release of running back Brandon
    Jacobs
    .


    Giants
    release Brandon Jacobs as sides are unable to reach agreement |
    NJ.com

    Someone informed of the talks between the sides said the Giants
    wanted to slash Jacobs’ total compensation for this upcoming season from $5
    million to $1.5 million with the chance to earn more through incentives. The
    person, who requested anonymity because the negotiations were to remain private,
    said Jacobs was looking for $2 million per season in a multiyear deal.


    The Giants, who were reportedly $9 million over the salary cap recently,
    had to get under it by the start of the league year on Tuesday. With the $5
    million they’ll save on Jacobs plus the $6.75 million they got back with a
    renegotiation of Eli Manning’s
    contract, they’re under." Read more...

    Thanks Ro.
    Another high round D-lineman is hard to even dream about. But a wet dream it is.

    Vinny Curry and Chandler Jones were two guys I had as sleepers back in November and they've really made the rise up the board.

    Chandler Jones fits the Giants ideal mold. This kid essentially has JPP's frame but has slightly longer arms. I really like Chandler Jones, and wouldn't mind if we drafted him. We could probably trade back a little and pick up a later pick and still get him.

    Hmmmm. I really like Chandler Jones. So I prefer articles of NYG interest in another undersized DE so Eagles trade up for him instead.
