Appearing on ESPN Radio’s Doug Gottlieb Show, Jacobs said that he shouldn’t have said what he said.
“Given the fact that it’s a colleague of mine’s wife, I do apologize for saying that, because I shouldn’t have said that,” Jacobs said. “It’s his wife and I should respect that just as much as anyone else.”
Jacobs’ contrition possibly was fueled by the fact that he could soon be a free agent, if the Giants opt to release him in lieu of paying a $500,000 roster bonus. Running his mouth could limit his options.
Of course, not running as hard as he used to is likely the bigger problem that he faces.
