Running back Brandon Jacbos wants to stay with the Giants, and the Giants want to keep him.
But not with a $500,000 roster bonus and a salary of $4.4 million.
The question becomes whether and to what extent the Giants are willing to pay — and Jacobs is willing, well, to not be paid. And Jacobs says there’s a limit.
“I want to stay in New York a whole lot, man, because this is where I started,” Jacobs told Bruce Beck of NBC 4, via Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger. “It’s a great organization. I got wonderful, great teammates. I won a second Super Bowl here with this organization.
“But I’m not willing to sell my soul, you know? It’s a great organization and I want to be a part of it, but if they’re not feeling the same way, then so be it.”
Jacobs, a seven-year veteran, said he hopes to play three more years. He may get that opportunity, but not at nearly $5 million per year.
