Reese: Jacobs To Be 'Part Of The Football Team'

It looks like Brandon Jacobs will be a member of the New York Giants in 2011. Per ESPN New York, GM Jerry Reese appeared on the Stephen A. Smith Shown on ESPN Radio 1050 in New York Monday and told Smith "We do expect Brandon to be part of the football team this fall."

Well, that settles one question. What I really got a kick out of, though, was Reese talking about how much talking Jacobs does -- and how little it really means.

"I guess you have to consider the source when Brandon starts talking," Reese said while chuckling on The Stephen A. Smith show on ESPN New York 1050. "You can’t read a lot into what Brandon is saying sometimes. We do expect Brandon to be part of the football team this fall. He is under contract. Brandon does talk a lot and like I said, sometimes you got to tune some of that stuff out that he is talking about.

"He’s just talking," Reese said. "Brandon likes to talk, sometimes he talks just to talk. Us here, in the Giants, in our building, we let some of that talk go off our back like a duck and we don’t worry about it too much."
