Brandon Jacobs desires to step down a NY Giant and is willing to the concept of restructuring his agreement for a 2nd straight year as long as it is “equal.”
The NY Giants have to make a decision next month on Jacobs, who is due a $500,000 check-list bonus and is scheduled to make $4.4 million in the last year of his deal. Last summer, Jacobs restructured his agreement to help the Giants re-sign Ahmad Bradshaw to a 4-year agreement worth $18 million. Football betting lines
“As long as it is equitable,” Jacobs asserted of altering his deal again. “I only need all to be fair. I think just like I put plenty of tough work and dedication into what I do as well and anything their plans are to try and preserve me around here, hopefully we will be able to get it debated and get things figured out because here is where I would like to be.”
Jacobs, who turns 30 year old in July, said the Giants didn’t give him any suggestion as to what their plan is for him after winning the Super Bowl over the New England Patriots. Football lines
“I wish issues can go great to where I am able to remain a Giant,” he claimed. “I started with the Giants; I would like to finish with them.”
“As an organization, they have been doing this stuff for years and they know what they have to do if they would like to keep me around and really I’d like to be around,” he continued. “I want to retire as a Giant. Those fellows have been working in the business long ample to know what they have to do to make it happen.”
Jacobs dashed for 571 yards – his lowest rushing total since his second season (2006) in the league – and 7 touchdowns this past season. He missed two games due to a knee injury and only received 5 more carries than he did the season before.
Jacobs, though, feels fresh and stated that he goes into the offseason not needing any type of surgery.
“I have no need for any offseason work,” he said. “I feel a bit like a newly born baby. (The Giants trainers) do a great job of looking after their players. I feel wonderful right now.”
Jacobs in addition said that he was inspired by what he saw from the Giants running game as the season progressed. While the Giants finished last in rushing in the NFL during the regular season, the team gained has a grand total of 100 yards or even more in 4 of the last 5 regular season games and surged for a total of 172 yards towards Atlanta in natural settings card win.
“As a team, (we) had a couple of different players on the line that we didn’t actually know, as backs, what their strong points and what’s their feeble points and where you are going and how they get there and a lot of other things,” Jacobs declared. “Things started coming together for us at the end of the season. Whatever occurs next year, I suspect we are going to be far better in that category.”
