New York Giants News And Notes: Brandon Jacobs, Wrestler

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let's see what is making news this morning.

Brandon Jacobs steps in to fill Jason Pierre-Paul’s wrestling boots | ProFootballTalk
After Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul declined an invitation to participate in a pro wrestling show, teammate Brandon Jacobs decided to take his place. Alex Marvez of reports that Jacobs will step into the ring Monday night during a TNA Wrestling taping. SB Nation's 'Cageside Seats' has more thoughts on Jacobs entering the wrestling ring.

My only thought about Jacobs and his TNA appearance is, 'don't do something stupid and get hurt.'

Speaking of Jacobs, and probably more important to the Giants, the veteran running back has again said he would like to stay with the team. He appears willing to take less than the $4.9 million the team would owe him under current contract to do so.

"Nothing has been discussed yet. However, it is coming," Jacobs said. "I want to keep my family [in New York]. I love my teammates and my coaches. It’s a great organization."
