One of the most bizarre things to come out of yesterday's news that Brandon Jacobs had signed with the New York Giants was the minimal, yet loud voice of some skeptics who claimed he was a "locker-room cancer" and would do the team no good.

Nonsense? Sure, but it's what some believe. And here in the social media age, when someone believes something, you're going to hear about it regardless of how foolish a notion it may be. But for those who have played with Jacobs, and those who will play with him for the first time, their collective reactions tell the more realistic story.

Punter Steve Weatherford:

Cornerback Terrell Thomas:

Former running back Derrick Ward:

Retired defensive end Michael Strahan:

These are just some of the reactions from yesterday and tells you all you need to know about Jacobs, his character and what it means for the New York Football Giants.


Several current and former teammates reacted positively to Brandon Jacobs signing with the New York Giants — a telling tale not wanting to be heard by some.
