Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has talked for months like a man who understood he was likely wrapping up his time in New York.
Four days before the Super Bowl, Jacobs feels a little differently. He was asked Wednesday if the Super Bowl will be his last game with the team.
“I honestly don’t think that’s the case. I think something’s going to get worked out,” Jacobs said via the New York Daily News.
We doubt it. Jacobs is due a $500,000 roster bonus in March and a huge salary. Jacobs knows he has to take a pay cut to stay, but we suspect the Giants are ready to move on.
Jacobs has been inconsistent at best this season. He doesn’t run with the same consistent aggression that he did early in his career. He’s too willing to bounce runs outside, and it rarely works out well.
It’s a topic that we conveniently talked about Tuesday on NBC SportsTalk.
