    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.

    If true, that is interesting.

    +1. Yeah, that was a shocker. I'm even more shocked that the Giants offered him $18M over 3 years than him turning it down to play for Atlanta for less money.

    I would definitely take BJ, and preferribly AB, at the vet minimum as our # 3 RB.

    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!

    it comes down to him wanting to Start form what the link said. I highly doubt he Starts with them. But did I read it right that he is only getting a total of 8.5 for the two years or 8.5 per year? It thats the case he gave up almost 2 million a season and forfeited the whole 6 Million for the 3rd season that wasnt offered by falcons.

    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    Looks like plax still has money issues. Not surprising. What is surprising is that no body thinks Jacobs is worth a shot? You'd think some team could use him in some capacity

    Osi sees himself as an every down starter. Will he get that in Atlanta?

    Both Bradshaw and Jacobs may be on short lists when RB injuries take their toll during the season.
