That would really make me upset if Jacobs' career was over. Dude is 30 years old. Would be totally unfortunate for the guy.
To me, the most interesting nugget from that article was that Osi turned down a 3 year $18M deal to stay with the Giants, and took less than that to play with the Falcons.
Sorry to see BJ's career end though. A true Giant.

Football has been very, very good to us.
In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-
# of Super Bowl victories since 1985:
1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
4-New York Giants!!!!!

I think that the fact that the Giants were willing to pay him $18M (if that's true), speaks a lot about how the FO views their pass rush needs. I think that it is very likely that we draft a DE in one of the first two rounds.
If the giants offer is true, which I'm not sure it is, then Osi leaving is much more personal than anyone has let on. He's clearly disenfranchised with the organization if that's the case because normally a player never leaves his home organization to take less money from another team unless there's some much deeper issues there.
And by deeper issues, I mean more than just wanting to be a starter.
All Hail The New York Giants!!
if this is true about Plax its a shame he continually puts himself in these positions! this guy appears to never had any decent direction in his life. amazing!
maybe the Jints could sign BJ for 1 more year to determine his effectiveness. i think he prolly has something left to contribute! his knees may not cooperate tho!
