Report: Brandon Jacobs will ask for trade
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 20, 2010 10:07 AM ET
Will Brandon Jacobs' east-west run and subsequent helmet toss/benching be his final act as a New York Giant?
That's what Jacobs hopes, according to a report from Vinny DiTrani, longtime writer of the Bergen Record that just can't stop covering Big Blue. DiTrani reports that Jacobs will meet with Giants management Monday and request a trade.
Good luck with that. Perhaps a divorce is best for both sides, but there is no team that would remotely be interested in Jacobs considering his salary and attitude. He's toxic. Oh, and he hasn't been particularly effective since the start of 2009.
The Giants gave Jacobs $13 million guaranteed before 2009 and surely regret it now. He no longer produces and seems to take his frustration out on others. There's next to no chance he'll be back in New York at $4.65 million next year, so the only question is whether the Giants keep him for the rest of this year.
Considering the money they have already paid Jacobs, we'd think they'd try to calm Jacobs down and get something out of him. They are getting used to that.

If he sorted his attitude out and was available at a good price, him and S-Jax would be a dream combo!! 2 of the biggest backs in the league, 1-2 punch, imagine that! As it stands, attitude and money wise, no-one might even give him a shot
