GIANTS LEFT FREE BRANDON JACOBS AND HE WANTS TO PLAY WITH THE JETS
Tue, 13 Mar 2012 04:42 PM EDT

The N.Y Giants have released Brandon Jacobs after the team and the running back were incapable to come to terms on a restructured agreement. Basketball scores

The team needed to decrease Jacobs’ salary to create more cap flexibility. Jacobs said that he was open to the idea as long as it was acceptable.

But they couldn’t come to an agreement. Jacobs was due a $500,000 roster bonus in March to go with the $4.4 million he was due this season. NFL scores

Jacobs, the New York Giants’ 4th-round pick in 2005, is 4th in franchise history with 4,849 rushing yards and has a franchise-record 56 rushing touchdowns.

Speaking to a newspaper, Jacobs claimed he thought he could play at least 3 more “good” years and he has not excluded joining the Jets in spite of a blunt – and expressive – postgame exchange this past season with Coach Rex Ryan.

“I would be happy to do that,” Jacobs said to the newspaper.”It might be an opportunity for me to not need to relocate. I got to do what’s best for my family. Whichever team it is, I believe is going to be a fortunate team. I got a lot left in me, got a lot to provide.”

Jacobs said he would have no complication getting along with Ryan.

“No question about it,” Jacobs said. “There were a large amount of things said in the heat of the battle. It’s football. I talk with players on the other teams every week and shake their hand later. I like Rex as a coach; I would absolutely play for him. I may not say I wouldn’t go there. It might be a chance to see how things are on the other side.”

The NY Giants now have Ahmad Bradshaw, D.J. Ware, Da’Rel Scott and Andre Brown at running back on the roster.

“It’s been a good ride,” Jacobs expounded in a press release. “It’s a fantastic organization, a standup organization. I had a great time. I won 2 Super Bowls here. I complete a lot in my career as a professional athlete here. That’s it. It has been a good ride. It’s time to progress.”

The team latterly restructured Eli Manning’s deal to make almost $7 million in cap space.

“Brandon has really been a great Giant,” managing director Jerry Reese claimed in an announcement. “These times are usually very difficult for me. We had a good conversation today. We don’t know what the future holds for Brandon, but we wish only the absolute best for him and his family.”

The Giants may possibly still have some other moves to make since they have 20 unlimited free agents and want to re-sign the likes of cornerback Terrell Thomas and middle linebacker Jonathan Goff.

“Brandon helped us win 2 world championships,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said in a press release. “He usually did what was in the best benefit of the team. Regardless of what you asked him to do, he performed and played in any role we asked if he’d accomplish. He really was a team player.”
