So here’s the latest on everyone’s favorite grouchy, helmet-tossing Giants running back.
But the consensus has emerged that Jacobs made no such formal request yet. Furthermore, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Giants wouldn’t deal him anyway. (And we don’t think anyone would be inclined to take him.)
Vinny DiTrani, who broke the story for the Bergen Record, says a meeting between Jacobs and team management will take place on Tuesday. Jacobs’ teammate and close friend Ahmad Bradshaw smells a rat.
“Something got out that wasn’t right,” Bradshaw said via Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger.
Whether Jacobs meets with management or not, it appears he’s staying put.
At least until 2011.
UPDATE: Giants coach Tom Coughlin says Jacobs hasn’t requested a trade or requested a meeting with Coughlin.
