New York Giants' Brandon Jacobs On His Way Out Of New York?

Brandon Jacobs said in an article in Men's Fitness magazine this week that he does not expect to be a member of the New York Giants beyond this season.

"I'm just here, doing the best that I can do to help my team," Jacobs said. "I come out to win; it's up to them whether or not they want to use me.

"I just can't wait to get a true opportunity to get out there and show myself again, you know? Next year, hopefully. This is a business and you have to look at it that way. I just want to get out there and show myself. It's going to have to be for another team, but it is what it is. It comes with the territory."

Truthfully, I don't expect the 29-year-old Jacobs to be a Giant next season, either. Per ESPN, Jacobs is due a $500,000 roster bonus next March, and more than $4 million in salary for next season. I would have to believe it is highly unlikely he ever sees any of that money from the Giants.

Why would the Giants pay Jacobs more than $4 million to once again carry the ball six to eight times per game -- when he is healthy enough to play? I don't see it happening. The Giants have Danny Ware, who despite all of our moaning about the guy, is a decent reserve back. Plus, they are already trying to find ways to get the ball to rookie running back Da'Rel Scott. In other words, they have talented, less expensive options.

Question is, will anyone else pay him that kind of money? Or make him a No. 1 back again? He can help a lot of teams, but I really have doubts anyone out there is going to make him a highly-paid featured back.
