Running back Brandon Jacobs want to remain with the New York Giants; he wants to retire a member of Big Blue. That's something he's remained certain and steadfast about since the conclusion of Super Bowl XLVI. But while appearing at a Play 60 event on Wednesday morning, the bruiser made it very clear there is a limit to his loyalty.
Jacobs is due a $500,000 roster bonus in March and is currently on the books for $4.4 million in 2012. As the clear #2 running back on a team struggling to get themselves under the cap, Jacobs will either have to take a pay cut or be set loose. This is something he realizes and accepts, and has already said he's willing to re-work his deal…if it's fair.
"As long as it’s fair,” he said in mid-February. “There’s something that can be done. I do put a lot of hard work and dedication into what I do as well. But as long as it’s fair, things can happen.”
The Giants have until March 13th to shed salary and get under the cap, which will possibly be lower than initially expected.
